This is where the sun sheath sat, up in that space with windows on either side. The sun sheath was a very important Chacoan (the people who built this giant expansive stone compound, and worshiped and lived there, up until about 1100 A.D.); his job was to watch the stars, sun and moon very closely, and decide when to start the new year, and the planting calendar.

    Intriquing photo and description! I’ve never heard of the “sun sheath” or the Chacoan, despite having visited New Mexico and some of the native American archeological sites near Los Alamos. This has reminded me how much I enjoyed visiting New Mexico in 2007 – would love to spend more time there!
