The World Of Native North American Indians

World Native North American Indians 30215381.jpeg Pueblo Bonito is one of the most extensively explored cultural websites in the Chaco Canyon Anasazi area of Mexico. The structures of the Chaco Canyon were at the center of the "Chacoan world," as they were prepared and constructed by the ancestors Puebloan and Anasazi in phases from 850 to 1150 AD. There are reports that a few thousand Asazi Indians formed a political, spiritual, and financial empire that encompassed much of Mexico and extended as far as Colorado, Utah, and Arizona. The empire eventually incorporated a larger part of what is now the Southwest, including Arizona, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Utah, along with the Colorado River Valley. Today, however, the Chaco Canyon is more important than its spectacular ruins; in New Mexico, it includes a broader cultural development explained below. The canyon, now called the Chaco Culture National Historical Park, is home to the biggest preserved stone homes, rock paintings and pictograms in the United States. The Terrific Houses are still there, as are the ruins of the Great Home, the Grand Canyon, and other ancient buildings such as a temple, amphitheater, church, and museum.

The Remarkable Pueblo Bonito and Chetro Ketl

The Chacoans put up uncommon terraces on the north and rear walls of the Pueblo, and an uncommon architectural function, the Pillars, was built as a wall facing the square with open space between the columns, which was later filled with masonry. Two large kives were set up on the big open space, a tower (s) were erected in a central area block, and a handful of other kives were set up around it and around the area blocks.Remarkable Pueblo Bonito Chetro Ketl 07501716826.jpg Although Chaco Canyon contains a range of structures of unprecedented size in the area, the canyon is only a small piece within the large, interconnected area that formed the Chacoan Civilization.
