Text of sign:

 

Pueblo of Tesuque 

 

The name Tesuque is a Spanish variation of the Tewa name Tetsugeh, meaning "narrow place of cottonwood trees."  The small

Tewaspeaking pueblo of Tesuque was established before 1200, and was first visited by Europeans in 1591.  It is one of the most

traditional of the Tewa speaking pueblos and played an important role in the 1680 Pueblo Revolt, which drove the Spanish from

New Mexico.
