Chuska

Chuska tradition types were produced in areas of northeastern Arizona and northwestern New Mexico within the Chuska Valley and along the eastern slopes of the Chuska Mountains, during the late Basketmaker III through the Pueblo III periods. Interestingly, pottery assigned to Chuska tradition types from the Pueblo II and Pueblo III periods occur in sites scattered over wide geographic areas. Chuska pottery types also tend to be very common at sites in Chaco Canyon, where they were widely utilized, but not produced.
