The name Pueblo means house or home in Spanish and was originally used to describe the cliff-dwellings and large apartment complexes built by the southwestern peoples. It eventually came to represent the people themselves. The name "Pueblo" collectively refers to a large number of different groups that lived in the southwest including theAcoma, Cochiti, Hopi , Isleta, Jemez, Laguna, Nambe, Picuris, Pojoaque, Sandia, San Felipe, San Ildefonso, San Juan, Santa Ana, Santa Clara, Santo Dimingo, Taos, Tesuque, Zia, Zuni. The Pueblo people lived in modern-day Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado. Unlike many Native American groups, large populations of Pueblo people still live in their ancestral homeland near the "four corners" region in the American southwest.
