New Mexico State Symbols
The name of the state of New Mexico comes from the Spanish Nuevo Mexico (“New Mexico”).
“New Mexico” the Spaniards called the land in the upper reaches of the Rio Grande in the XVI century. When in the middle of the 19th century these territories began to belong to the United States, the name was preserved only by changing the sound to an anglicized one: “New Mexico” instead of “Nuevo Mexico”.
The word Mexico, which gave the name to the state of Mexico, its capital Mexico City and the US state of New Mexico, comes from the language of the ancient Aztecs and means “place of god”.

Chaco Culture National Historical Park
The New Mexico National Historical Park includes monuments to the Chaco culture. Here are the remains of a sophisticated prehistoric settlement of the Pueblo type, which was quite common in the American Southwest in earlier times. However, Chaco is remarkable for its monumental public and ceremonial buildings, but also for its unique architecture.
This culture underwent great development during the 11th and 12th centuries. Chaco Culture National Historic Park is tucked deep in the desert and only a rutted dirt trail leads to it. This complex of ancestral Puebla buildings is the most extensive pre-Columbian city in North America. A river used to flow here, but it has dried up today. More than three thousand human dwellings and settlements were counted in the shallow canyon that forms the park. However, they are all abandoned today. Archaeologists are constantly debating why these people actually left. Allegedly, they were forced to do so by increased tectonic activity and changes in natural conditions.
The best-preserved settlement is Pueblo Bonito, which could be translated from Spanish as Beautiful Settlement. It is a semi-circular building located at the foot of a vertical rock and forming the letter D in ground plan. The history of the residence dates back to 850 AD. At that time, there were up to four-story buildings with many ceremonial spaces called “kiva”.
The entire Four Corners area, where Chaco Park is located, has been a crossroads of Indian nations since ancient times, and several ancient cultures have left their traces here: the Anasazi, the Sinagua, the Cohonin and the Hohokam. Today, we find impressive ruins in these places, which offer us the opportunity to look back up to two thousand years into the lives of the ancestors of today’s Hopi, Zuni or Ut tribes.
