Thousands of years ago, Ancestral Puebloans formed the land here, building awe-inspiring stone and adobe cities. They left a rich history you can still see today. They inhabited the area for hundreds of years prior to conquistador Francisco Coronado’s AD 1540 arrival in New Mexico, as his party searched for the fabled Seven Cities of Cibola. The descendants of the Ancestral Puebloans currently reside in 20 pueblos in New Mexico and Arizona.
