The Anasazi were American Indians who resided in the four corners ( Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona ) area of the United States from approximately 800 to 1400 AD. The early form of their house is referred to as the 'basketmaker house'. Over time, the house form moved further out of the ground, while the ceremonial lodge, the kiva, moved further into the ground. This demonstrates the significance of house and religious dwelling forms as reflecting the origin of a culture.
