Wupatki Pueblo and the blowhole

Dr. Harold S. Colton, co-founder of the Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff, was instrumental in the establishment of Wupatki National Monument in 1924. His work at Wupatki was influential in Flagstaff area archeology, and he was responsible for the name "Sinagua" assigned to local cultures.
