Comments: Where did the name Galisteo come from? I see many references to the Galisteo Pueblo, but no information on when it acquired that name.

Comments: There were 8 Pueblos in the Galisteo Basin, one of which was named Galisteo Pueblo by the modern day Galisteo Village. Juan de Onate, came to San Marcos Pueblo another of the Pueblos after following the Galisteo River and then going up its tributary the San Marcos stream. He then went into Santa Fe. One of the other early explorers Espejo I believe found all the other Pueblos and named them: San Lazaro, Blanco (white clay), Che, Pueblo Largo, San Cristobal, and Colorado (red pottery). (I think he used some of the Indian lore in naming them.)

Comments: Galisteo is a place Estremadura in Spain. It is also a Spanish surname. Some sources also say that it is an old term for a native of Galicia in Spain.
