Zuni is off the beaten path, located in a valley surrounded by red mesas.  Most of its inhabitants descend from people who have llived in the village known as the Pueblo of Zuni for three hundred years.  Art is an important of Pueblo life, and the Zunis are known particularly for their very fine inlay and petit point jewelry.  Many artists at the Pueblo sell directly to the customer, offering prices that are much lower than elsewhere.
