SURVIVING COLUMBUS chronicles the Pueblo Indians' 450 years of contact with Europeans and their long, determined struggle to preserve their culture, land and religion. Using stories of Pueblo elders, interviews with Pueblo scholars, archival photographs and historical accounts, this program shows that the survival of the New Mexico Pueblo Indians was the result of a lengthy fight to control their own lives. The program begins with the emergence of a flourishing Pueblo culture at sites such as Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde and concludes with a look at the Pueblo peoples of today.
