Granaries at Keet Seel ruins in Navajo National Monument hold corn cobs stored seven centuries ago. Navajo families farm centuries-old field in Canyon de Chelly National Monument, site of prehistoric cliff dwelling inhabited by the Anasazi, ancestors of today's Pueblo Tribes. And Hopi and Navajo artisans still sell their trademark rugs and jewelry at the Hubble Trading Post.
