Munoz Canyon Pueblito Map
Located on a small sandstone outcrop overlooking Muñoz Canyon, this pueblito consists of a three room structure. No structure walls remain standing and only parts of wall alignments are visible among the rubble. Below the site is a navajo petroglyph that is in poor preservation due to weathering.

Ceramic Assemblage: Ceramics observed included Dinetah Gray wares and Gobernador Polychrome.

Tree-ring Analysis: Six tree-ring samples have been collected from the site, all of which dated and indicate a construction date of 1743 or 1744. Pinion and juniper is represented among the samples (Towner 1997).
