Travel through time with Tortugas Pueblo as members honor their past and celebrate a century of Los Indigenes de Nuestra Se ora de Guadalupe, a group formed to protect its Native American heritage in 1914. Richly illustrated with 225 black-and-white photographs, this history is documented by writer/photographer Pamela Porter, who worked with Los Indigenes on this project for many years. Tortugas Pueblo people share their stories of continuing traditions, faith, and their hopes - and uncertainty - about the future as the 21st Century unfolds. Tortugas at 100: Steps in Time & Grace explores the cycle of rituals and events throughout the year, ending with the three-day Fiesta de Nuestra Se ora de Guadalupe (December 10-12) that includes an all-night vigil, a pilgrimage to the top of Tortugas Mountain, and the joyous feast day, which concludes with a dazzling procession around the southern New Mexico village.
