A picture is worth 1,000 words ... in Taos, it's more like 2,000

Sometimes the photo tells most – if not all – of the story.

We wanted to share some recent photos that hadn’t landed on our pages yet.

Thanks to Rick Romancito and Katharine Egli of the Taos News for the great shots.

Fifty tribal elders, all men. We assume this patriarchy is a Pueblo tradition, but it is not. It is something the Taos Pueblo developed under the influence of the Spanish. I hope that the Pueblo will return to its true historical roots and allow women a greater say in tribal affairs. In the meantime, it might be helpful if the women on the Pueblo formed their own council and insisted on an equal voice in their community.

This book by Stanford professor Ramon A. Gutierrez might be a helpful read: "When Jesus Came, the Corn Mothers Went Away: Marriage, Sexuality, and Power in New Mexico, 1500-1846."
