Remembering the return of Blue Lake – Indian Country Today

Gilbert Suazo Sr., a member of the Taos Pueblo Council, said remembering the return of Blue Lake to Taos Pueblo is important because it reminds people of the significance of what happened.“The return of Blue Lake, our beautiful and culturally important land, took over 64 to 90 years of our people’s energy and dedicated efforts against complex legal, governmental and political obstacles to accomplish,” Suazo said. “This was the first time the federal government returned land wrongfully taken from an Indian tribe.”
