The first permanent Spanish settlement brought new foods and cooking methods to the region in the late 1500s. Wheat became an important staple because it was easier than corn for making bread. Pueblo men learned to harvest wheat while the woman were taught to build hornos, beehive-shaped ovens used for bread-making.

From village to village, the hornos vary in construction materials and techniques. Using mortar, either rocks or adobe bricks are layered in a circular shape over a stone base. An arched doorway is created in front and a small hole is formed for a vent. Finally the hornos are plastered inside and out with adobe mud. With great care, the hornos can last for many years.

Today Pueblo people continue the proud tradition of baking bread in their hornos, as they have done for centuries.
