Anasazi State Park
Fast Fact: Ancestral Puebloans are the ancient people and culture sometimes referred to as Anasazi. That’s a Navajo word meaning “enemies of our ancestors,” so, for obvious reasons, contemporary Puebloans don’t prefer it.
This park shelters the ruins of an ancient Native American village, one of the largest Ancestral Puebloan communities found west of the Colorado River. Known as the Coombs Site, it is believed to have been occupied from 1160 to 1235 CE and may have housed as many as 200 people. Read more...
