Walpi, a Hopi village in northern Arizona, USA.

Walpi was established about 900 AD, has been continuously inhabited for over 1100 years, and is an excellent example of traditional Hopi stone architecture.

Situated on the south tip of First Mesa at an altitude of 6,200 feet, Walpi was relocated from the valley plain to its present site shortly after the Pueblo Revolt in 1680. Still inhabited today, the pueblo extends for some 640 feet along the narrow mesa top, which is at most 150 feet wide. The community is contained almost entirely in a single highly irregular building mass.

Amazing Ancient Ruins of the Pueblo People

Ancient Pueblo people were an ancient Native American culture centered on the present-day Four Corners area of the United States, comprising southern Utah, northeastern Arizona, northern New Mexico, and southwestern Colorado. Archaeologists still debate when this distinct culture emerged but the current consensus is around 12th century BC.

They lived in a range of structures, including pit houses, pueblos, and cliff dwellings designed so that they could lift entry ladders during enemy attacks, which provided security. The pictures above feature some of the amazing pueblos and cliff dwellings of these people. The most photographed ruin is the “House on Fire” (picture 1). This ruin, when captured at certain times of the day, resembles a dwelling on fire and is a favorite among photographers.

  • "House on Fire" ruin in Mule Canyon, South Fork, Utah
  • Petroglyph with the prehistoric symbol, flute player Kokopelli
  • Multistory dwellings at Bandelier. Rock wall foundations and beam holes and “cavates” carved into volcanic tuff remain from upper floors
  • Laguna Pueblo dwellers posing for a picture
  • Doorways, Pueblo Bonito in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico
  • Casa Rinconada, Chaco Culture National Historical Park, New Mexico

Members of America’s only all-female chain gang march to a bus that will transport them to their worksite outside Estrella jail in Phoenix, Az. With a few exceptions, chain gangs were abandoned in the U.S. by 1955, but Arizona reintroduced the practice in 1995. The women volunteer for the duty, looking to break the monotony of jail life. Most are in for minor convictions and are housed at a collection of surplus military tents erected next to the Maricopa County jail to ease overcrowding. Photograph: Jim Lo Scalzo/EPA

So Let’s summarize, racism against legal immigrants, misogynist law against women birth control and now this. What else?
