Salmon Ruins is an ancient Chaocan and Pueblo site located in Farmington, New Mexico.

Salmon was constructed by migrants from Chaco Canyon around 1090 CE, with 275 to 300 original rooms spread across three stories, an elevated tower kiva in its central portion, and a great kiva in its plaza.

(A kiva is a large, circular, usually subterranean or semisubterranean structure used for important events, political gatherings, or ceremonies).
