Upper San Juan

The Upper San Juan, or Gobernador, region straddles the Colorado-New Mexico border and includes the upper reaches of the San Juan River and its tributaries. Various pottery forms produced in this region exhibit elements of two distinct ceramic traditions: one is associated with an Anasazi occupation dating from about A.D. 300 to 1100 and the other, a later Navajo tradition.
