Mesa Verde History, Art & Culture

Discover the Heart of the Southwest

More than a recreational playground, Mesa Verde Country is a land filled with rich history and cultural importance. A visit here lends abundant opportunities to immerse yourself in culture – where past and present meet in the shadow of the Sleeping Ute Mountain.

Contrary to popular belief, the Ancestral Puebloans did not become a lost civilization. They are alive and well, their descendants living in Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico. Although times have changed since they left their cliff dwellings, a cultural continuum can be traced over 2,000 years.

Attend one of the free Traditional Native American Dances at the Cortez Cultural Center to witness this thriving culture.
