Malpais Savage Reservation

The 'savage reservations' are areas that remain untouched by science and the new world, allowing the native people to preserve their customs and traditions. Although Malpais is a fictional place, its inspiration lies in the Southwest United States, where real Zuni reservations can still be found.

The Zuni tribe live in a pueblo (town or village), on Mesas: isolated flat-topped hills with steep sides. Ladders are used to reach their homes.

The area is surrounded by desert. Rainfall is scarce and erratic. The Zuni, therefore, build dams to collect water.
