Po’pay (also spelled Popé) was the leader of the Pueblo Revolt of August 10-21, 1680, a successful indigenous uprising which drove the Spanish colonists out of the settlement they named Santa Fé de Nuevo Mexico (located in what is now the state of New Mexico). The Pueblo killed 400 Spanish and drove the remaining settlers out of the area. Twelve years later the Spanish returned and were able to reoccupy New Mexico. Po’pay’s statue, seen above, is currently on display in the United States Capitol’s National Statuary Hall.
