Ten miles northwest of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and three quarters of a mile west of the Rio Grande River, lies the small town of Corrales. A rural Spanish community, it has a current population of about 7,500 people and is situated in Bernalillo and Sandoval counties.

Corrales has had a long and eventful history, with Indian, Spanish and Anglo cultures playing major roles in its development. The first people to settle in the area were an Indian tribe known as the Tiguex. The communities of the Indian Pueblos were highly organized and structured around the ideas of order, moderation and unanimity.
