?Bienvenidos! Caminantes!

Come! Take a walk with us. We know an old song, El Caminante, which tells of taking a long walk along the ancient roads. Like the first prehistoric inhabitants, you too are a ?caminante', or one who walks upon this land."
The People of the San Luis Valley

"Almost five hundred years ago, the Navajos began hearing stories from our Pueblo neighbors about the strange men they had seen. These men had thick beards and were dressed in metal helmets and armor. They road from one place to another on animals that looked like large dogs."

"As they rode, their iron weapons rattled noisily and sunlight glinted off their armor. Like a lost war party, they clanked and clanged their way across the American Southwest, stirring up great clouds of dust. We called them Naakaii, or Those-Who-Wander-Around. They were the Spaniards."

Los Caminos Antiguos, already well worn and traveled by the sixteenth century, was a perfect inroad for Spanish explorers.
