White Cliffs

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 23 June 2014 in Landscape & Rural.

The complex landscape and spectacular geologic scenery in the Kasha-Kaatuwe has fascinated visitors for centuries. Before the nearby Cochiti Reservoir was built, surveys recorded archaeological sites showing human occupations for over 4,000 years. During the 14th and 15th centuries, several large ancestral pueblos were built and their descendants, the Pueblo de Cochiti, still inhabit the surrounding areas. Kasha-Katuwe means "white cliffs" in the traditional Keresan language of the Pueblo.
