One of the most traditional of the Eastern Pueblos, Taos has borrowed from Anglo- and Spanish-American cultures over centuries of contact, while retaining its cultural integrity and identity as a community. In the 17th century, the Pueblo was a center of resistence to Spanish rule which drove the Spanish from the area for 12 years. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, October 9, 1960
