ABQ Close-Up : Albuquerque is unlike any other city. That’s often why people choose to live there. “ABQ Close-Up” periodically explores the singularity of the city and, in doing so, attempts to show what makes its people and places distinctive.

Ultra-Brief History of N.M.

See New Mexico at the Millennium: who we are, why we came, looking forward. An Albuquerque Journal special section

By 400 AD, according to the state government’s Blue Book, most of the population in western New Mexico had begun to settle into semipermanent or permanent riverside villages, while those in the eastern areas of what is now New Mexico remained nomadic.Ý

Of the people in the western regions, those in the southwestern part of the state are known as Mogollon while those in the northwest are known as Anasazi.ÝThe period between 1050 and 1300 AD is referred to as the Golden Age of the Classic Pueblo Period. For reasons still not understood, between about 1200 and 1400 AD many areas of New Mexico and the Southwest, including the thriving Chaco Canyon, were abandoned.ÝDrought may have been a contributing factor, and these people may have been assimilated into the Acoma and Zuni communities in the Rio Grande region.

In 1598, the Spanish founded a colony at the Tewa village of Ohkay, after which they were expelled only briefly by the Pueblo Revolt in 1680. New Mexico became part of the Mexican Republic in 1821, and a territory of the United States in 1850. It gained statehood in 1912.
