Glossary Term – Event
In New Mexico, the Pueblo peoples, led by Popé, coordinated an uprising against the Spanish at dozens of settlements across hundreds of miles. The Indians destroyed buildings and churches and killed more than 400 Spaniards. They burned Sante Fe and drove the Spanish back to El Paso. While the Pueblo Revolt was the most successful effort by American Indians to drive out European settlers from their lands, the Spanish were back in twelve years.
