On August 10 1680, the Pueblo people began the most successful uprising against colonial power in North America.
For 11 days, Spanish colonisers were driven out, taken prisoner or killed, their horses were stolen and Christian churches were burnt to the ground. They did not manage to return for the following 12 years. The Pueblo people rebuilt their society and ensured the survival of their traditions, languages and religions.
Matt Liebmann joins Don today to discuss the revolt and to share some of his findings from archaeological research in New Mexico.
Matt is Professor of Archaeology in the Department of Anthropology at Harvard University, he has conducted collaborative research with the Pueblo of Jemez since 2001.
