The Pueblos ate mostly vegetables, but they would eat meat when they had it.They hunted for rabbit, gopher, and squirrel. They also hunted for deer, antelope, and mountain lions.  They ate a lot of corn.  Each community had a sun watcher to let everyone in the village know when to plant seeds. To get water to their crops the Pueblo would sometimes go to the top of a snowy hill and roll a giant snowball to the village. They also used an irrigation system. The Pueblo grew corn and squash.  They raised other vegetables such as peppers, onions, chilies, and tobacco. Corn was dried and ground like sand to be stored.
