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…
- The Hopi, furthest west, speak an Uto-Aztecan language distantly related to Nahuatl.
