Notes
Survey number HABS NM-171
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N571).
Significance: The pueblitos are small multi roomed masonry dwellings found in the Navajo homeland, or Dinetah region of northwest New Mexico. Dating from the early 17th century, the pueblitos are significant indicators of the complex social relations that existed among the Navajos, Pueblos and other tribes, and the Spaniards. Notable for its location and superb architecture, Gomez Canyon Pueblito is situated on a small sandstone point, with an outer wall conforming to the outline of the protruding sandstone outcrop. The irregular surface of the sandstone outcrop necessitated the construction of a narrow subfloor room to provide a level floor surface for the two primary rooms, two masonry pillars frame the narrow doorway opening supported by a wooden lintel. The site includes four forked stick hogans, three middens, and a pile of burned sandstone.
