Dinétah is the traditional homeland of the Navajo people. The region is full of Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) and Navajo rock art and small Navajo ruins called pueblitos, which is Spanish for “little pueblos.” There is also evidence left by the Ute tribes and early Spanish explorers and settlers.
PLEASE NOTE: The rock art and pueblitos noted here are open to visitors during the government shutdown. Please be mindful of the area and pack out everything that you pack in.Learn More »
