Salinas Pueblo Misson National Monument

In English:
In the 17th century, an ancient trade route that linked the Rio Grande to the Great Plains shared this fragile mountain valley with a bustling pueblo full of people who spoke Tompiro. When a single Spanish priest walked into town in 1622, a spiritual, material, and cultural revolution started in Abo. Nothing would ever be the same again.

In Spanish:
El cruce
En el siglo XVII, una antigua ruta comercial que un?a el r?o Grande a las grandes llanuras comparti? este valle de monta?a fr?giles con un bullicioso pueblo lleno de gente que hablaba Tompiro. Cuando un sacerdote espa?ol solo camin? a la ciudad en 1622, una revoluci?n cultural, espiritual y material comenzaron en Abo. Nada iba a ser el mismo.

Graphic Illustration:
In English:
For the Tompiro's, the well-known trail across Abo pass had always brought tradegoods, travelers, and new ideas this way. Who could have foretold that the arrival of a single friar might change their world forever?

For a Spanish priest, Abo was the remote edge of a vast and growing empire that included outposts in Asia, Africa, the Americas, and Europe.

In Spanish:
Para pasa de la Tompiro, la ruta conocida a trav de Abo siempre trajo nuevas ideas, viajeros y tradegoods as?. ?Que podr?a haber predicho que la llegada de un fraile solo puede cambiar su mundo para siempre?

Para un sacerdote espa?ol, Abo fue el borde remoto de un vasto y creciente Imperio que incluye puestos de avanzada en Asia, ?frica, Am?rica y Europa.
