Word Origin for pueblo
noun plural -lo or -los
"Indian village," 1808, from Spanish pueblo "village, small town; people, population," from Latin populum, accusative of populus "people" (see people (n.)).
Native American people, now found in Arizona and New Mexico, whose distant ancestors often lived in multilevel dwellings on the sheer sides of canyons. Some of these dwellings, which resembled apartment houses, can be seen in Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. The Spanish explorers discovered these people in the sixteenth century living in villages and named both the villages and the people “pueblos” (Spanish for town).
