Flagstaff Ancient Indian Ruins

Evidence shows that prehistoric Native Americans occupied the Flagstaff region for thousands of years. The most evident are the ancient Indian Ruins of the Sinagua Indians. Flagstaff, Arizona is blessed with several of these well-preserved ruins within very close driving distance of downtown Flagstaff.

Ancient Pueblos of Wupatki and cliff dwellings in Walnut Canyon are only minutes away and are open to the public. These sites exemplify what life must have been like for the Sinagua Indians up to about 1400 when they mysteriously disappeared. Archaeological theories confirm stories and traditions of the ancient civilizations.

Today's Native American Indian Tribes still have strong sacred ties to these places and many believe the Sinagua are the ancestors of the many existing Tribes in Northern Arizona. Enjoy these Indian Ruins, but protect them as gifts to future generations.
