Sedona

Honanki Heritage Site

This cliff dwelling and rock art site is located near the town of Sedona in north-central Arizona. Managed by the U.S. Forest Service the site is open to general public for visits. The heritage site is very well preserved. Some of the brick-and-mortar walls still stand, while others are in various stages of deterioration. Above the ruins are numerous pictographs. Some predate the cliff dwellings by several thousand years. Although sections of the rock art have faded over time and a number of pictographs have been obscured by vandals there is still much of the rock art left to admire. The Sinagua, ancestors of the Hopi, lived here from about AD1100 to 1300 preparing meals, raising their families, and making tools from stone, leather, and wood. Nearby they hunted for deer and rabbit, tended various crops, and gathered edible wild plants. Contact Red Rock Ranger District before a visit.
