Abstract (in English)

The Four Corners region of the American Southwest, where the states of New Mexico, Utah, Colorado and Arizona meet, is home to a cultural and historic legacy unique in the nation. Native American villages high atop Arizona's Third Mesa are the oldest continuously inhabited settlements in the U.S. More archaeological sites exist in this region than in any other part of the country. Pueblo and Navajo cultures continue to inhabit a landscape where all forms of nature are sacred.
