Some pictures of my holidays in USA from May until June 2012:

3) Acoma Sky City, New Mexico

The Pueblo lies on a 365-foot mesa. The isolation and location of the Pueblo has sheltered the community for over 1,200 years, seeking to avoid conflict with neighboring Navajos and Apaches.

Three reservations make up Acoma Pueblo: Sky City (Old Acoma), Acomita, and McCartys. The Acoma Pueblo tribe is a federally recognized tribal entity. The historical land of Acoma Pueblo totaled roughly 5 million acres; now only 10% of this land is in the hands of the community. According the 2010 United States Census, 4,989 people identified as Acoma. The Acoma have continuously occupied the area for over 800 years, making it one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the United States.
