Facts on File
The Zuni was the first Pueblo tribe to encounter the Spanish, when Franciscan missionaries entered present-day western New Mexico in the late 1530s. They are one of the few tribes in North America that has remained largely autonomous. They still reside in their original homeland and have been able to hold on to many of their customs and beliefs.
