Jemez Historic Site

Dig Giusewa

The Dig Giusewa public archaeology program was established to address long held questions about the Jemez people involving their origins and how their lives changed after the arrival of the Spanish. To accomplish this, New Mexico Historic Site Staff, Friends of Coronado Historic Site, and Jemez Pueblo Tribal Members are excavating a small section of Jemez Historic Site’s Native American village, Giusewa Pueblo.
