The Chaco meridian proposed in 1999 recommends that the Aztec ruins were relocated the early 12th century and moved again to the severe south of Paquime by the end of the 13th century. Recent work suggests that this north-south orientation was necessary and might have shaped Paqime's local history well into the 16th and 17th centuries. This brand-new information comes from a new analysis of the historical proof for the existence of a south-east-west orientation at the site.

The canyon started to decay as a local center when the brand-new buildings stopped and the influence on the Aztec ruins and other large houses moved. At the exact same time, individuals moved away from the canyon and transformed themselves in other locations, such as New Mexico, Arizona and New York City City. A recent research study found that a scarlet macaw, a vibrant parrot, was brought from Mesoamerica to Pueblo Bonito on a journey undertaken by a member of the elite class of the Chaco Canyon culture, the Aztecs. It would have been a wonderful piece of luxury that would have assisted determine whether Chico Canyon belongs to the elite class or not.
