This chapter reviews the changes in Black Rock’s cultural landscape. Prior to the twentieth century, Black Rock was a place to live, to grow crops, hunt for game, and collect plants. The turn of the twentieth century brought in new people with new ideas, new values, and new meanings for the landscape, many of which clashed with the Zuni people’s cultural identity. Today, while Black Rock is a mixed Zuni-Anglo community, it is still considered not really a Zuni place. When a Zuni becomes engaged in exclusively Zuni activities, activities that are rooted in ceremony and tradition, he or she goes to the Middle Place.
