Description:

Interestingly, Taos Indians (and my guess is all Indians) made entrances to their dwellings from the roof, accessed through ladders (a very common architectural element in pueblo facades). There were no doors or windows but only solid thick walls to provide thermal insulation and protection from wild animals. There were tiny square openings on the walls acting as smoke outlets. Traditional doors and windows featured in pueblo architecture following Spanish dominance in southwest America. The dome like structures in the front are clay ovens used to bake bread. Baking, cooking and eating were community activities - a set of ovens seen every 7 or 8 houses with large common areas for cleaning and cooking hunted animals in the center of the pueblo settlement.
