The "Anasazi" are the prehistoric peoples that occupied the four corners region of the

American Southwest: Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah.

The name "Anasazi" is a Navajo word meaning "ancient enemies" or "enemy ancestors", this name gained popularity over the past century and is the most common and widely used. However, Pueblos of today have long objected to this term and make a convincing arguement that "Ancestral Pueblo" is more accurate.

Most famous for Black-on-White pottery, although they also produced exquisite yellow-orange-redwares.
