The Taos Pueblo and Its Sacred Blue Lake
"A triumph of the human spirit. This story deserves endless retelling". (Stewart L. Udall) In the mountains of northern New Mexico above Taos Pueblo lies a deep, turquoise lake which was taken away from the Taos Indians, for whom it is a sacred life source and the final resting place of their souls. Marcia Keegan's text and historic photographs document the celebration in 1971, when Taos Pueblo got the sacred lake back after a 60-year struggle with the federal government. Her photographs of everyday life at Taos Pueblo and quotes by members of the community capture the spiritual beauty of Taos Pueblo and its people. All royalties from the sale of this book are donated to the Oo-oonah Children's Art Center of Taos Pueblo.
