Taos Pueblo, New MexicoTaos Pueblo

– The Taos Pueblo became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992. It is the only Native American living community that enjoys this honor. It has been home to Native Americans for more than 700 years, and today there are approximately 150 people living full time there. Most of the inhabitants in the pueblo are Catholics, and they also celebrate traditional religious rituals passed down from their ancestors. If you can be there during one of such ceremonies, don’t miss it. You will not be able to photograph it, but you will be glad you were there.
