Acoma Pueblo is a Native American pueblo approximately 60 miles west of Albuquerque, New Mexico in the United States. Three reservations make up Acoma Pueblo: Sky City (Old Acoma), Acomita, and McCartys. The Acoma Pueblo tribe is a federally recognized tribal entity. The historical land of Acoma Pueblo totaled roughly 5 million acres; now only 10% of this land is in the hands of the community. According the 2010 United States Census, 4,989 people identified as Acoma. The Acoma have continuously occupied the area for over 800 years, making it one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the United States.
The word "Acoma" is from the Acoma and Spanish word Acoma, or Acú, which means "the place that always was" or "People of the White Rock". "Pueblo" is Spanish for "village". Pueblo refers to both the people and the unique architecture of the Southwest. The Acoma language falls in the Keresan language group. In Contemporary Acoma Pueblo culture, most people speak both Acoma and English. Elders might also speak Spanish.
