Archaeologists for the most part interpret early Pueblo history without the assistance of the Pueblos’ own narratives. As a result, they tend to privilege environmental and economic explanations over social and ideological ones. When archaeologists do use Pueblo ethnography, they often oversimplify important differences among Pueblos. Here, members of two Pueblo communities share with archaeologists their insights on archaeology, culture change, mobility, and rights to land and to cultural knowledge.
