Simple gifts: Acoma Pueblo

This is St. Esteban del Rey, the mission church that sits 400 feet above the New Mexican desert and crowns thousand-year-old Acoma Sky City, sacred heart and spiritual epicenter of Acoma Pueblo.

Scroll to the post below (Oct. 7) and listen to an excerpt from Ribbons of Highway: A Mother-Child Journey Across America. We learn about the Acoma people's deep faith and rich culture from Dale Sanchez, great grandmother, family matriarch and tribal leader. Enjoy the journey.
