What does ‘Kiva’ mean to us?

A Kiva is a type of ancient, circular underground dwelling created by the people living in the four corners region from 800-1200 CE. Some were used for ceremonial purposes within the community, while many more were communal gathering places.  These dwellings were hardly recognizable from above ground, for they only had a small opening with a ladder to lower down into them.  Some were accessed through underground tunnels, which connected to towers above ground. 

 

The Kiva Center aims to reclaim the feeling of having a home in the Earth, which although seems hidden at times, it can be found deeply nested within every human being.
