Pecos Tribe

The Pecos Indians were a Pueblo people of what is now New Mexico, speakers of a Towa dialect. The Pecos no longer exist as a distinct tribe. Decimated by famine, warfare, and disease, the surviving Pecos people moved west to join their kinsfolk at Jemez Pueblo. Most Pecos descendants are still living at Jemez today.
