AD 850 to 1250
Chaco Canyon was  a major urban center of ancestral Puebloan culture. Remarkable for its monumental public and ceremonial buildings, engineering projects, astronomy, artistic achievements, and distinctive architecture, it served as a hub of ceremony, trade, and administration for the prehistoric Four Corners area for 400 years--unlike anything before or since.

1250 to Present
Members of affiliated clans and religious societies from Hopi and the Pueblos of New Mexico continued to return to Chaco on pilgrimages to honor their ancestral homelands.

The Chacoan people did not just "disappear" when they left the Four Corners area (shared state border area of New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Colrado) in the 13th century. They migrated from this area, moving south, east and west to join relatives living on the Hopi mesas, along the Rio Grande and around
Zuni Mountain. Today, these people themselves tell stories of migrations from Chaco to their present homelands. read more
