1: The Pueblos are a tribe with one main belief. They believe in Kachinas, ancient spirits who make clouds and rain for their people. The Pueblos believed that the Kachinas once lived among the people, but left because they felt they weren't getting the attention they deserved. The Pueblos had festivals in which they would ask for rain to help their crops. They would dance around in masks and costumes and they usually chanted. | BELIEFS
