"'This land and its inhabitants, then, having been ever since God created them, subject to the Demon, and his slaves until this time: and all filled with estufas of idolatry; where they not only never adored the most holy name of Jesus but did not even know it...is filled with churches and pedestles of Crosses...' - Fray Alonzo de Benavides, 1630

"The "estufas of idolatry" mentioned above were, in fact, kivas or sacred strutures of the Indians. These kivas were often destroyed by the friars in their quest for souls. The sunken area in front of you is the remains of a kiva."
