is the ancient town of the Northern Tiwa
speaking tribe of Pueblo people
, Native Americans
. It lies about one mile north of modern Taos, New Mexico
on the Rio Pueblo , a small stream which flows from the Sangre de Cristo Range
. 95,000 acres (384 km²) are attached to the pueblo; about 2000 people live there. In their own language the name of Taos is Tua-tah which means "our village."
Taos' most prominent architectural feature is a multi-storied residential complex of reddish-brown adobe divided into two parts by the Rio Pueblo.
