The Keresan people of Santo Domingo Pueblo are considered descendants of those peoples inhabiting the general region in the 1200s. The actual location of the lands occupied by the people now living in Santo Domingo has changed over time due to flooding. Santo Domingo replaced the pueblo's original name (Gipuy) in 1691 when Catholic missionaries renamed pueblo lands with saints' names. The Spanish land grant designating this Pueblo's land (the land they already recognized as their own -- approximately 70,000 to 75,000 acres, according to different sources) was issued on September 20, 1689 by Governor Domingo Jironz.
