Pueblo Indians, a group of North American tribes living in New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas. They are an agricultural people who live in compactly built, permanent communities known as pueblos, the Spanish word for “towns” or “villages.” The older pueblos are made up of stone or adobe (sun-dried clay) multifamily dwellings of several stories, built in a distinctive terraced style. There are 19 inhabited pueblos; in addition, a number of outlying villages are occupied during the farming season. All are within Indian reservations. There are about 60,000 Pueblo Indians living on and near the reservations.
