ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the modern pottery making of the Pueblo Indians in Zuni, New Mexico in 1880. It states that Acheson, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad in 1880 signals a new era for Pueblo people. Along with plentiful supply of commercial substitutes for pottery, came a steady flow of tourists anxious to take home soveigners of their travels. It cites that the effect of the new development of the Pueblo pottery craft is damaging in terms of quality, as well as quantity. Moreover, some pottery production in the area has declined dramatically.
