ncestral Puebloans, also known as the Anasazi, were an ancient Native American culture that spanned the present-day Four Corners region of the United States, comprising southeastern Utah, northeastern Arizona, northwestern New Mexico, and southwestern Colorado. The people and their archaeological culture are often referred to as "Anasazi". This, meaning "ancient enemies", was the name they were called by Navajo, who are not their descendents.

They possessed a complex network that stretched across the Colorado Plateau linking hundreds of communities and population centers. They held a distinct knowledge of celestial sciences that found form in their architecture. The kiva, a congregational space that was used chiefly for ceremonial purposes, was an integral part of this ancient people's community structure.

Archaeologists continue to debate when this distinct culture emerged.
