Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument Quarai Trail Guide


Journey through time with this guide to the Quarai Trail at Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument. This trail takes you through the unexcavated Tiwa Indian village and seventeenth-century Franciscan Mission ruins of Quarai. Learn about archeological clues that tell the story of the original inhabitants of Quarai - Tiwa-speaking Puebloans who migrated into the area in 1300 CE. Follow the trail to view the remnants of structures from the Spanish church to a Tiwa kiva. Cultural and societal rifts along with famine and drought ultimately led both the Spanish and Puebloans to leave the area in the 1670s.
