Tajique was originally a Tiwa pueblo. The name Tajique may have been derived from the Tiwa name Tush-yit-yay. The original date of settlement is unknown. In the early 17th century, Tajique served as the seat of the San Miguel Mission. After an Apache raid in 1674, the inhabitants of the Quarai pueblo joined the Tajique pueblo, doubling the population to over 600 residents. In 1675, a subsequent Apache raid forced the abandonment of the Tajique pueblo.
The Trigo Fire in April, 2008 threatened the area, and Tajique was later evacuated due to the Big Spring Fire in June of that year.
