Homolovi, Arizona (the accent is on the second o, which is long), one of a series of many ancient Hopi pueblos found in the Southwest, offers visitors the opportunity to journey into Hopi life and culture.
The Homol'ovi cluster of archaeological sites includes seven separate pueblo ruins built by various prehistoric people, including ancestors of the Hopi people. Homol'ovi is a Hopi word for "place of the low hills." This fertile area is on a floodplain of the Little Colorado River, and the inhabitants grew cotton, corn, beans, and squash. At the peak, it is estimated, 5,000 people lived at Homol'ovi. Homolovi II, the largest of the four pueblos, had three plazas and stone walls rising two to three stories, and housed several thousand people.
Homolovi Ruins State Park is Arizona's first archaeological state park. It consists of four major pueblo sites, inhabited by the Anasazi peoples between 1200 and 1425 A.D.
