Greater Chaco Landscape
April 9 - 13, 2019 - Naamehnay Project, Inc. WORKSHOP FULL - Please contact us for wait list.
Chaco Culture National Historical Park, located in northwest New Mexico, is arguably the most significant ancient cultural site in the United States. Between AD 600 and 1260 Chaco Canyon was a major hub for the Ancient Pueblo People. The canyon contains the remnants of great houses, kivas, roads, gridded gardens and irrigation systems built by a people who were proficient in astronomy, architecture, agriculture and the arts. This workshop presents a rare opportunity to explore and photograph Chaco Canyon’s great architectural and cultural heritage. You’ll walk on ancient roads and through buildings placed and designed by the cycles of the moon and sun, and by the Chacoan’s amazing innate grasp of engineering parallel to today’s technology. The workshop will also focus on the breathtaking surrounding areas known as the Greater Chaco Landscape. This includes Angel Peak Badlands and Ah-Shi-Sle-Pha, two areas known for its unusual geological landforms found only in the Four Corners Region of New Mexico. More Information
