The pueblo of Santa Clara again permits visits to the site, guided by knowledgeable interpreters. Excavated in the early 1900's by E.L. Hewitt, the ruins are equivalent to those of Bandelier, except, the guided tours make them much more informative. Our tour was led by Porter Swentzell, a pueblo member, and Tewa speaker who has made hit life's work, the study and preservation of his native pueblo history. He is best described as an ethnologist and lives on the Pueblo. If you are lucky enough to get a tour with him, it will be the highlight of your day.
