Petuuche Gilbert, Acoma Pueblo, speaks of the sacredness of Mount Taylor, and how Spanish Conquistadors enslaved and cut off the feet of Acoma men who were over 20 years old when they struggled to protect their sacred land from the invaders. Their visitors, Hopi, told them how the Conquistadors cut off their hands. Petuuche said the Conquistadors meant to send a message to others that would resist the Conquistadors invasions into their homelands.
Petuuche speaks of Sky City and Kaweshti in the distance.j
