Greater Chaco Landscape, New Mexico

Casa Rinconada (pictured) is a 63-foot-wide (19-meter-wide) kiva—a communal room used for ceremonial purposes by the prehistoric peoples of Chaco Canyon.

The site is one of hundreds of archaeological and cultural landmarks scattered across northwestern New Mexico. Known collectively as the Greater Chaco Landscape, these sacred sites, and the fragile prehistoric roads that connect them, are in jeopardy due to increased oil and gas exploration and extraction, according to the trust.
