This paper aims to analyze the Pueblo revolt of 1680 in New Mexico through an analysis of two scholarly secondary sources from David Weber's book, "What Caused the Pueblo Revolt of 1680?," and two primary sources found in internet history archives. After briefly outlining the studies' central conclusions and divergences, the writer probes the primary sources and applies them to the findings. The central argument made in the essay is as following: that the distant revolt was triggered by both economic hardship and millenarian expectations.
From the Paper:"In "What Caused the Pueblo Revolt of 1680?," David Weber offers a wide array of scholarly approaches to this historically distant indigenous uprising. Two of the essays presented in his study, those authored by Henry Bowden and Ramon Gutierrez, attempt to grapple with the religious flavor of the revolt, and their conclusions vary significantly. It is the purpose of this essay, then, to use these two studies as a launching pad with which one can attain an understanding of the conflict's religious orientation."
