Pueblo Nations and State and Federal Government Policies

 The Territorial government in New Mexico did not know exactly what to do about the Pueblo Indians as they were pastoral rather than nomadic.  They enacted many laws governing these Nations and the State and Federal governments added to the confusion and ignorance after statehood was granted in 1912.  Just how did these laws and statutes affect the daily lives of the Pueblo Nations and how were they rectified?

Ron Solimon current president and CEO of the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center located in Albuquerque and sits on the National Tourism Board and was a former Board member of the Laguna Development Corporation.  He has written many articles on Pueblo Indians and is in high demand as a speaker and motivator.
