    In , Richard Wetherill, who earlier had discovered a great many outstanding prehistoric ruins in the southwest, including the great cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde, moved to Chaco Canyon. In the same year he interested Talbot B. Hyde and his brother Frederick E. Hyde, Jr., of New York in undertaking excavations in the ruins.   Chaco Canyon has great importance for all Americans, but because of ties of history, ancestry and geography, it has a very special meaning to the native peoples who view it as sacrosanct.

The Chacoans constructed two types of kivas, great kivas and clan kivas. Great kivas, such as Casa Rinconada, typically contained benches, niches, floor vaults, a fire hearth, and a north-oriented doorway and may have been used for community or regional gatherings with hundreds of participants.

Being the central hub of Puebloan society, Chaco Canyon possessed twelve multistory great houses made of stone and wood, a dozen great kivas and hundreds of smaller housing sites.

Great houses were constructed of sandstone and timber with veneer masonry and. Around AD, the Anasazi began constructing huge stone building complexes in Chaco Canyon.

Chaco became the ancient centre of a culture linked by a network of roads and over seventy settlements many miles away. Today, Hopi, Navajo, and other Pueblo Native Americans trace their spiritual and cultural history to Chaco.

Most of Chaco’s great houses were built along the north side of the canyon in little over a century, from AD to about AD ; but each great house has a unique construction history, and several started much earlier.

Pueblo Bonito was one of the earliest great houses and is typical—perhaps archetypical—of Chaco Canyon great houses. Chaco is located in a high, desert region of New Mexico, where water is scarce. The remains of dams, canals, and basins suggest that Chacoans spent a considerable amount of their energy and resources on the control of water in order to grow crops, such as corn.

Today, visitors have to imagine the greenery that would have filled the canyon. The features of this Great Kiva at Chetro Ketl, half mile east of Pueblo Bonito, are typical of Chacoan Great Kivas.

Excavation by the Museum of New Mexico in the s and '30s revealed that the Chetro Ketl Great Kiva ( feet in diameter) is actually two kivas. Their colossal achievements can be observed in many places, including the striking cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde National Monument.

But the crest of the Anasazi wave was Chaco Canyon National Monument, a shallow, windswept wash in northwest New Mexico. Here in Chaco Canyon New Mexico, 1, years ago, strange and unexplained events unfolded.Cite this Record. The great kivas of Chaco Canyon and their relationships.
