Summary:
Footage taken of the Zuni Pueblo, western New Mexico, and the surrounding landscape. The film records the structure and layout of the pueblos in relation to the surrounding buttes and river valley. Also included is brief footage of the Zuni people. Occupation of the Zuni River Valley is thought to have begun in the AD 300s, however, construction of the large pueblo complexes did not begin until the 13th century. Historical evidence for these pueblos dates back to the 16th century with the records of Cabeza de Vaca. This film forms part of the Frank Harold Hanna Roberts, Jr. Papers in the National Anthropological Archives.
