Laguna Pueblo Indians


These people have longed lived in New Mexico. They have been civilized for 1,000's of years. Below is a map of these four Reservations including Laguna, which are actually one Reservation and google earth photos of their towns of Laguna and Mesita, located west of Alberquerque. Laguna Pueblo Indians of New Mexico are a part of a highly advanced civilization known as Pueblo or Anasazi Civilization. They are related to Apache's and Navajo's or an admixture of Ojibway and Anasazi. Athabascan people live in southwestern United States and northern Mexico. According to 1832's Edinburgh Encyclopedia, Athabascan People are Algonquian or speak Ojibway. From a western location, Lenni Lenape or Ojibway's, forced their way east and took control of all land from Missouri River to Atlantic Ocean. They then sent detachments of their soldiers to Hudson Bay. From there, they were sent to Beaufort Sea where they gave rise to Athabascan Tribes. Ojibway 19th century authors back up that information. They wrote that Ojibway's forced their way east from a western location. So Apache's and Navajo's are in fact Ojibway. They won't accept it because they believe what white historians wrote concerning their history and are scared. Laguna Pueblo is very different. They looked upon Athabascan People as invaders. Ojibway People may have invaded that region 1,000 to 2,000 years ago. Their motivation was prophecy. It was same with Italians and Spaniards who invaded their territory in late 16th century. This highly civilized site was not established in 1699. A lake once existed within their territory. That's how they got their name of Laguna which is from an Italian word for Lagoon which is Laguna. Laguna Pueblo Reservation covers 781.0 sq. mi. or 2,023 sq. km. Their on-Reservation population is 3,914 according to 2010's census. Combined with those three other Reservations, total size of this Reservation west of Alberquerque, is 1,831.6 sq. mi. or 4,744 sq. km. Laguna Pueblo is their largest district. Their combined on-Reservation population is 11,686. Laguna Pueblo is located west of Canoncito and adjancent to Acoma.
