Its people are federally recognized as a Native American tribe.Pueblo of Isleta is located in the Middle Rio Grande Valley, 13mi south of Albuquerque. It is adjacent to and east of the main section of Laguna Pueblo. The pueblo was built on a knife-shaped reef of lava running across an ancient Rio Grande channel.
