Four Mimbres women and men reach out to the four directions among clouds and animals that are a part of their world. An ancient people, the Mimbres lived in what is now southwestern New Mexico. They farmed corn, beans, and squash along a rive the Spanish called Mimbres, for its many willows. By 1150 CE, the Mimbres people began migrating out from the Mimbres River and today, the pueblo people of New Mexico and Arizona are among their descendants.
