The Tesuque Creek watershed and bottomlands in modern-day Tesuque Village are part of the Tewa-speaking people of the Pueblo of Tesuque’s ancestral and traditional landscape. Archaic hunter-gatherers camped along the floodplain for almost 4,000 years before the ancestral Puebloan farming communities dating back to 900 and 950 AD.
When the Spaniards arrived in Northern New Mexico at the end of the sixteenth century, the Pueblo of Tesuque was already populated. In August 1680, the people in Pueblo of Tesuque planned and promoted a rebellion against the Spanish colonists. The rebellion expelled Spanish colonists, administration, and mission priests for thirteen years.
Other than the rich history in Tesuque, locals and tourists can also enjoy the famous Camel Rock Monument.
