Description:

Po?pay: Leader of the First American Revolution chronicles the history of the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 and its leader, Po?pay, with commentaries on the historical and cultural importance of these events. Drawing on their oral history and using their own words, the Pueblo writers discuss for the first time the history and importance of Po?pay, the illustrious San Juan Pueblo Indian strategist and warrior who was renowned, respected and revered by their people as a visionary leader. This particular time in New Mexico's history that changed the state forever, helping make it the richly multicultural ?Land of Enchantment? that it is today. It also demonstrates how the events of the Pueblo Revolt enabled the Pueblos to continue their languages, traditions and religion on essentially the same homelands from ancient times to today. The second part of the book covers the historical making of the seven-foot-tall Tennessee marble statue of Po?pay for the National Statuary Hall in Washington, D.C.
