New Aquisition

The Museum was recently given this important early Anasazi bowl.

The Anasazi were native to the ‘four corners’ area of the USA. The region, bounded by the Rio Grande to the East, the Colorado river to the North, and the Little Colorado river to the West, is where the modern states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah meet. Although the lands they once inhabited are now populated by the Navajo, the Anasazi are the ancestors of today’s Hopi, Zuni, and other Pueblo peoples’. In fact the name ‘Anasazi’ comes from the Navajo word for ‘enemy ancestors’.
