IN THIS WEEK'S PAPER: Leyendas: 50th Anniversary of Blue Lake Return

Twenty years ago, in Y2K, the Taos News published its first Tradiciónes, an annual special section honoring Taos times, customs and cultures in four weekly installments. The first of the series is Leyendas (the Spanish word for legends), storied events both real and imagined, yet so momentous as to change the fabric of our history forever. Inside Leyendas, we look at the 50-year battle for the return of Taos Pueblo's Sacred Blue Lake — a feat finally establishing self-determination of American Indians for the first time in the history of the United States.

Find the Leyendas special section in this week's edition of the Taos News!
