Keet Seel, or Kiet Siel (‘broken house’ in Navajo) is a preserved cliff dwelling of the ancient Anasazi people located in the Tsegi Canyon in northeastern Arizona. The site was first occupied at around AD 1250 and abandoned in the early 14th century. At its peak, it is believed that up to 150 people inhabited the site.
