Known as "footprints” of the ancestral clans of the Hopi peoples, Wupatki was where migrating clans met and merged. From roughly 400 to 1700, culture in the Southwest—a 300,000 square mile (777,000 sq km) area—was distinguished by farming, pottery, villages, pueblos, seasonal moves, and large scale migrations. Until the mid-1100s, the landscape of Wupatki remained a “frontier” between established groups of the Sinagua, Cohonina, and Kayenta. Although this is one of driest and warmiest climates, life still flourished.
Wupatki National Monument was established by President Calvin Coolidge on December 9, 1924, to preserve Citadel and Wupatki pueblos. Monument boundaries have been adjusted several times since then, and now include additional pueblos and other archeological resources on a total of 35,422 acres.
There are several sites to enjoy within the Wupatk National Monument. Wukoki Pueblo, Wupatki Pueblo (the largest), Citadel Pueblo, Nalakihu Pueblo, and Lomaki Pueblo's (several with the Box Canyon). Some you have to walk small trail, some are steep and some have steps, so these many be too difficult with folks with disabilites.
