The people of the Hovenweep area were strongly influenced by the people of Mesa Verde. And like the people of Mesa Verde, they abandoned the Hovenweep area about the same time, some going southeast to the Pajarito Plateau and Rio Chama Valley, some going southwest to the Hopi mesas.

Somewhere I came across something about the people of the Poshuouingeh area coming from the Upper San Juan drainage, perhaps the Lowry or Yellowjacket Pueblo areas.
