Taos Pueblo pays tribute to Nixon

........................................................................................................................................................................................

TAOS PUEBLO – A northern New Mexico American Indian tribe is scheduled to honor the late President Richard Nixon for what would have been his 100th birthday year.

The Taos Pueblo will pay tribute to the California-born Republican today with a special honor at a powwow.

Nixon is highly regarded among the Taos Pueblo and other American Indians for agreeing to return to some lands to tribes. In 1970, for example, he returned around 48,000 acres of sacred lands to the Taos Pueblo.

Tribal officials said the president’s younger brother, Ed Nixon, will accept the honor and give remarks on behalf of the Nixon family.
