Notes
Survey number HABS NM-167
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N567).
Building/structure dates: 1727 initial construction
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. Kin Naa Daa Pueblito was built about 1727, is a small three room structure located on top of a talus boulder. Its "columnar" masonry is one of the best examples of this construction method typical of the pueblitos. The name of this site is Navajo for Maize House which refers to the well-preserved small cob-maize found in a storage area at the base of the boulder. Originally, the pueblito was built as a two room structure with a second story parapet. Later the original entry was blocked and a narrow entry passage was constructed along the eastern side. Significant features include several original roof vigas still in place and footholds leading to the top of the boulder.
