Awatovi Ruins

Keams Canyon, ArizonaAwatovi Ruins

  • It was declared a National Historic Landmark on July 19, 1964.

Located on the Hopi Indian Reservation, Awatovi Ruins is the site of one of the most important Hopi Indian villages encountered by Coronado's men in 1540.  It contains the remains of a 500-year-old pueblo and a 17th-century Spanish mission complex.  Excavations were conducted at the site by the Peabody Museum in the 1930s.

Overall, the site is in good condition but there are still some ongoing problems that need to be addressed, such as:  Ongoing erosion of exposed walls.  If left unchecked, these architectural features will eventually collapse; the site is occasionally visited without permission by tourists and, as a result, surface artifacts are being lost.

No recent actions have occurred.
