2900 AD

When Chaco Canyon was active, native peoples journeyed from all across the land, following the path of the sun and stars to arrive at a grand destination that was truly a cultural crossroads.

The descendants of the ancient people are still among us in the Pueblos of the Southwest. The legacy of Chaco Canyon reminds us that we must honor the land, its history and future. We must work together to create lasting monuments that will stand the test of time. We must protect the sacred sites surrounding us and create new centers for community, rest and respite.

As the world around us continues to spin faster and evolve more quickly, let’s remember to stop and be present in the moment that is here and now.
