Let's Get our land back
Many Puebloans were mad at the Spanish because they were forced to work. Some of them were annoyed, and others were sad. They just wanted to run away and stop being forced to work.
Spanish Fleeing To El Paso
Follow me we need to go to El Paso
The Puebloans have lost it. They did not want any more of it. So Popé united people from 20 different Puebloan tribes. He united them together to go fight the Spanish for their land back. They knew that if they unite they will add up to more people then the Spanish.
The Spanish Returning 12 years Later
The Puebloans lost patience, they did not like being forced to work and practice other religious beliefs. The Pueblo Indians thought their gods were mad at them because they don't worship them anymore. They were way more than the Spanish so they attacked them and won.
Let's fight for the land!!!!!
After the pueblos won the fight, the Spanish fleed to El Paso for 12 years. During those 12 years, the Pueblos destroyed everything that the Spanish used to have. They did not want to remember anything about the Spanish.
After 12 years the Spanish returned eagerly to regain their lost land and glory. The king elected Vargas to lead. The king also wanted the Indians to continue their work.
