History

Access to the pueblo is difficult as the faces of the mesa are sheer (a topographic map shows this best). However, he was cleared of all charges on appeal and lived out the rest of his life in Spain. Upon reaching San Juan Pueblo, Onate had all the Native Americans who were living there, removed from their homes, and used it as a base to stage more raids on other Native American pueblos in the area. Others believe that the word 'aa'ku' actually comes from the word 'haaku' meaning 'to prepare'; a description that would accurately reflect the defensive position of the mesa's inhabitants. Some believe that the name Acoma comes from the Keres language words for the 'People of the White Rock', with 'aa'ku' meaning 'white rock', and 'meh' meaning 'people'.
