Tumacacori National Historical Park Things to Do: 29 reviews and 45 photos
Across the yard from the convent we saw a Murro-Ki, a modern construction of a traditional O'odham Indian dwelling, made of mesquite timbers, ocotillo cactus, and mud. It was built in 1997 according to ancient custom by O'odham workers using traditional hand tools. This type of structure was once used for O'odham housing as part of the mission complex. It has a juato or mesquite ramada porch and comal for cooking. These huts are said to be cooler in summer and warmer in winter because of the insulating properties of the materials used in the construction.
