The Tribe

The Piro/Manso/Tiwa Indian Tribe, Pueblo of San Juan de Guadalupe is an historical tribe located in the Mesilla Valley in southern New Mexico. The Tribe constitutes the only organized Piro and Manso Indian group remaining in the United States. Our ancestors are from the Piro Pueblos of Abo, Senecu, Gran Quivera, Tabira, Socorro, Alamillo and Sevilleta in central New Mexico. Our original homeland was in central New Mexico, where we had occupied various villages and had enjoyed a well-differentiated culture by the time of Spanish conquest. The Piro/Manso/Tiwa Indian Tribe's members have continued to reside in close proximity, and the Tribe persists as a modern Indian community. We hold regular meetings, ceremonies, community events, special meetings and annual elections in our tribal homelands in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Quarterly tribal meetings and ceremonies have continued at tribal members’ residences because the Tribe is not federally recognized and lacking a reservation.

Petition for recognition are in BIA and the process is going on.
