Many of us are familiar with and may have even visited the seemingly mystical places in the Four Corners of the U.S. Southwest on the Colorado Plateau, including Mesa Verde, Chaco Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, and many more. These were the long-ago homes of people we know as Pueblo, who began farming in the region 4,000 years ago. Their descendants – the Hopi, Zuni, Acoma, and Rio Grande Pueblos – retain strong spiritual connections to these places told in oral histories passed through generations. Together we will explore what made these places special then and even today: how did people survive and prosper in this harsh region, why did they leave these places, where did they go, and what can Pueblo people today tell us about their ancestors?
