11 What I Learned From researching the Pueblo Indian Revolt, I learned a lot. I learned that the Pueblos valued their religion. They held religious dances and ceremonies, worshipping often with their religious objects. When the Spanish came and took all that away, the Pueblo Natives rebelled. They cared about their beliefs and fought for them. They sacrificed for their people and the things they cared about most. From this great example of courage, I have learned to respect my standards and stand up for what I know to be true.
