The Pueblo tribe peoples, are Native Americans from the Southwestern United States who were farmers and herdsmen who lived in villages. The Pueblo tribes are famous for shared common agricultural, material, and religious practices. Pueblo, which means "village" in Spanish and was a term originating with the Colonial Spanish who used it to refer to the people's particular style of dwelling.

Native American cultures in the Southwestern United States are strongly associated with the Kachinas, Kivas and the Soyal Solstice Ceremony. They are also known for their sand painting technique the art of pouring colored sands and powered pigments from minerals or crystals, or pigments from other natural or synthetic sources to make a fixed or unfixed sand painting. A vintage signed Southwest pottery design is an exceptional piece to add to your art collection. Would display nicely on a shelf with other similar collectibles.
