AAA Editor Notes
Tigua Indian Reservation and Pueblo is 12 mi. w. via I-10 exit 32, then 3 mi. s.w. on Zaragosa Rd., then .7 mi. s.e. on Socorro Rd. to 305 Yaha Ln. The Tiguas (TEE-wahs) were relocated from New Mexico during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. The tribe completed the Ysleta mission, one of the oldest in North America, under Spanish direction in 1682. The present structure incorporates the original foundations and some adobe walls. Adjacent is the Ysleta del Sur Pueblo Cultural Center, with a museum, bread ovens and a dance area.
