University Press of Mississippi

This chapter presents accounts of how the Zuni people came to occupy Black Rock and the Zuni River valley. One account is stored in Zuni memory and remembered through Zuni oral history. Other accounts, based on archaeological evidence, suggest that the ancestors of the people referred to as “Native Americans” migrated to North America across a land bridge that spanned the Asian and American continents during the end of the last ice age—the Pleistocene Period.

Keywords:   Zuni people, Black Rock, oral history, archaeological evidence
