Saints of the Pueblos by Charles M Carrillo
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Saints of the Pueblos is an exploration of the connections between Hispanic and Pueblo cultures - delving into the Hispanic devotional images of saints and Pueblo pottery traditions. Each of the nineteen active pueblos is represented with a retablo created by Charlie Carrillo of its patron saint in the style of that pueblo. Four additional ancestral pueblos are also represented. Each image is supported by research about the history of the mission church, the patron saint, and the historic pottery of that pueblo. Historic photographs are included of the Spanish missions at each pueblo. Although Charlie Carrillo is known for his santos of New Mexico, he has done extensive research into the archaeology and pottery traditions of the region. Carrillo's interests in santos and pottery are the genesis of this book. This book proves that these cultures are indeed intertwined. The book serves as a poignant and useful reminder of the Catholic traditions of the Pueblo Indians meshed as they are in subtle ways with traditional indigenous spiritual practices. -New Mexico Historical Review Highly recommend this book for its artwork, its history lessons, and for its sheer creativity and genius. I could offer no higher praise.- This book is a must-read! - Santa Fe New Mexican This is the first book to bridge the two major cultures of New Mexico. - People of God It is recommended for researchers, writers, tourists, and students of religious art. - Colonial Latin American Historical Review
