Taos Pueblo Lunch Visit the traditional home of a member of the Taos Pueblo and see how life has been for hundreds of years, without running water or electricity. Over a typical Pueblo lunch, hear the story of the Red Willow People through the voice of a member of the Taos Pueblo. This is a perspective that most don't have the opportunity to experience; interacting directly with a local, seeing their home, and seeing their life. This is not a tour. Approximately one hour in duration. Does not include $16 admission to Taos Pueblo.
