Abstract: The goals of this paper are to analyze and interpret changes in kiva form and village layout at sites occupied by prehistoric people in northeastern Arizona. Between AD 1000 and 1500, kivas changed from circular to D-shaped or rectangular forms. Developments that correspond with the appearance of the rectangular kiva include a drastic increase in village size, a change in village layout, the development of the enclosed plaza, and the appearance of iconography associated with the katsina cult. Relationships among these changes are examined (p. 155).
