In May 1539, the world of the Pueblo Indians changed forever. Through wild tales & exaggerations, the Zuni city of Hawikuh would be transformed into one of the fabled Seven Golden Cities of Cibola. The following year, Coronado & his soldiers would wreak destruction & violence on this peaceful world in search of non existent gold.
