Kiva: an underground or partly underground chamber in a Pueblo village, used by the men especially for ceremonies or councils.

A kiva in an active pueblo village is usually off-limits to the casual tourist. These are in a now-defunct pueblo which had a population of over 2,000 in the 1500s when Spanish explorers came upon it. The pueblos gradually fell out of use (for multiple reasons) and there is no longer any native population there. These images were taken in a rebuilt kiva in the Pecos National Historical park near Santa Fe, New Mexico.
