Cortez, city, seat (1889) of Montezuma county, southwestern Colorado, U.S., on the Navajo Trail, in the San Juan Basin at an elevation of 6,177 feet (1,883 metres). The Ancestral Pueblo (Anasazi), an early Pueblo culture, were the first known inhabitants of the region. After their mysterious disappearance about 1300 AD, the Ute, Navajo, and Arapaho peoples settled the area. The city of Cortez, named for Hernán Cortés (the Spanish conqueror of Mexico), was laid out by the Montezuma Valley Irrigation Company in 1886 on the site of a Navajo Indian seasonal camp called Tseyetoh (Navajo: “Water Rock”). The company also built a diversion canal from the Dolores River to the town centre.
