Native American ancestry
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.
