The Archeological Treasures of Homolovi State Park

Discover a place in Northern Arizona that is sacred land to the Hopi, a budget-troubled state park, and a storehouse of ancient relics.

Homolovi State Park has just re-opened following a one year closure due to budget cuts. It is a sacred place to the Hopi people, who are now financing the park through a special one-year contract. Mark Duggan takes a closer look at Homolovi's future as a state park, and at some of the archeological treasures that have been recovered there. His guide to some of these priceless artifacts is Arizona State Museum curator Chuck Adams.
