Ancient Condo Living

The Kinishba ruins are a few miles away from the historic Fort Apache (of John Wayne fame).

It is the remains of a village built and occupied by ancestral Pueblo dwelling people between about AD. 1250 and AD. 1400. Kinishba is an anglicized Apache phrase that translates to brown house. According to Hopi elders, Kinishba may once have been called Ma'ip'ovi (place of the snake grass).
