Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 2, 1974):
The Zuni-Cibola Complex is comprised of a series of sites on the Zuni Reservation, containing house ruins, kivas, pictographs, petroglyphs, trash mounds, and a mission church and convent. They have proven to be an important source of material providing evidence for the fusion, in prehistoric times, of Mogollon and Anasazi traits that led in subsequent centuries to a distinct Zuni culture.

Condition:
The condition of this National Historic Landmark remains the same. Grazing, which destroys plant cover threatens the landmark with erosion, is an ongoing concern.

There has been no change since the last reporting period.
