Wukoki & Wupatki

The Sinaqua Indians were here from around 1100 AD to 1250 AD, building a community out of aboriginal masonry in the high desert.
Wukoki means “Big House” in the Hopi language.
Wupatki means “Tall House”, and shows more of the lifestyle of the ancient peoples, from arenas used for entertainment, to food storage areas and living quarters. This area was occupied as early as 500 AD.
No one knows why they left the area when they did, but the state of preservation of these sacred places is unbelievably well maintained to this day.
Go back in time, remember on your country’s sins, and pay respect to the original inhabitants of this great land.

Wench, bring my ale, what say you?
