Historical note

The Council of All the New Mexico Pueblos was organized in 1922. The Pueblos were confronting the menace of the Bursum Bill and the yet wider menaces of Albert B. Fall. The Council of All the New Mexico Pueblos was being organized upon the initiative of Cochiti Pueblo, under the endorsement of Santo Domingo Pueblo and through the torchbearing effort of Taos Pueblo. Seventeen governors, priests and headmen of the eighteen Pueblos went to the East to defeat the Bursum Bill.
