Pueblo Native Languages

Unlike other confederacies of related Indigenous Peoples such as the Iroquois or Wabanaki, the Pueblo People are linguistically diverse, speaking languages from four unrelated language families: 

  • The Acoma, Cochiti, Laguna, San Felipe, Santa Ana, Santo Domingo, and Zia Pueblos speak Keresan languages. 
  • The Isleta, Jemez, Nambe, Picuris, Pojoaque, Sandia, San Ildefonso, San Juan, Santa Clara, Taos, Tesuque, and Tigua/Ysleta del Sur Pueblos speak Kiowa-Tanoan languages. 
  • The Zuni speak their own language which is not known to be related to any other. More
