welcome to this is america in voa special english. i'm steve ember.

voice two:

and i'm barbara klein. this week we visit two special places in the state of new mexico. they are important in the history of the pueblo indians of the southwest united states.

(music)

voice one:

in eighteen eighty, a scientist was traveling in the southwest united states. adolph bandelier was researching the history and social organization of the american indians who had lived there for centuries.

when he was in northern new mexico, men from the cochiti pueblo took him to a place where their ancestors had lived in frijoles canyon. mister bandelier saw the ruins of the ancient pueblo or village and said, "this is the grandest thing i ever saw."

voice two:

today, many visitors to what is now known as bandelier national monument feel the same way. they lift their eyes to the tall rock walls that rise hundreds of meters up from the floor of the valley. they climb ladders to enter some of the caves that were homes centuries ago. they walk along the frijoles stream lined with green trees that once was the only water supply for the valley. they wonder at the beauty of the area and imagine what it felt like to live there hundreds of years ago.
