I hope this is not politically incorrect, but I am wondering if a pueblo is the same as a reservation. I'm new to the Southwest and this puzzles me having noticed Pueblo used in NM and Reservation used in AZ. Thanks to anyone who can enlighten me

Thanks so much AlisonL for that link. I googled and googled and couldn't come up with anything. I checked out the link to the Rio Grande botanical gardens too. I'll have to visit that.

And thanks rybert for the welcome.

I love it when people pipe up about things I've always wondered but never took the time to ask. Great question!

The Botanical garden is fantastic, even if you aren't a garden lover. Make sure to walk through the gardens to the back where the Japanese garden and historical farm are - you go between the two glass structures and down a 1/2 mile long path; well worth the extra effort.

I believe that pueblos were existing Native American communities settled by tribes on their own and reservations were created by the government as a place to send Native Americans although some of the land deemed res was already considered Native American "turf".

I will, thanks for the heads up. I think I'll try for this week-end. Read that there's a butterfly pavillion as well, but that's not open til May. Went to the botanical gardens in Phoenix (or Scottsdale) a few weeks ago. It was just beautiful.

That sounds like a very plausible explanation. Thanks, karmathecat!
