Kinishba Ruin

Kinishba is an ancient pueblo site just west of Fort Apache. Excavations have revealed that the people who built the pueblo were a mix of cultures: prehistoric Mogollon and Anasazi. The mix is indicated in their style of architecture, methods of construction and in the manufacture and design of pottery and other remains they left behind. The site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is under the care of the Fort Apache Nation. Clans from both the Zuni and Hopi tribes trace their ancestral roots back to Kinishba.
