Fajada Butte, Chaco Canyon, Mexico

In the middle of ancient Anasazi - called Chaco Canyon - increases an imposing natural structure called Fajada Butte. On a narrow rocky outcrop at the top of this mountain is a spiritual website of the native individuals, which got the name "Sun Dagger" and revealed the shifting seasons to the astronomers of An asanasazi thousands of years back. Although the canyon was abandoned more than 700 years ago for unidentified factors, the tricks of the dagger stay concealed to only a few. It discreetly marked the course of the seasons for many centuries, but lasted only 10 years before its discovery and was lost forever.

Basketmaker II: Birth Of Pueblo/ Anasazi Culture

The basketmakers settled about 2,000 years back in the western part of the Colorado Plateau, near what is now Pueblo, Arizona. Individuals who lived in this area, the so-called Western basketmakers, were possibly the very first inhabitants of Arizona and the southern Arizona area.Basketmaker II: Birth Pueblo/ Anasazi Culture 60665333004983628.jpg Archaeologists think that these were antiquated individuals who moved to the area from southern Arizona, but the easterners (referred to as Eastern B basketmakers) might be the earliest occupants of this region, in addition to the ancestors these days's Navajo and Apache individuals. While a few of them lived westward, the "basketmakers" were also found in northern Arizona and as far south as Tucson. This group of individuals, now called the Anasazi, transferred to the plateau region in the southwest about 2,000 years back, around the very same time as the basketweavers of the eastern B. Fists "Anasazis hunted wild animals and gathered fruits, seeds and nuts as food. Brigham Young University archaeologists dig next to an old highway near Recapture Creek. It is developed with parts of yucca plants and wet willows that flex somewhat, and a a great deal of stone tools such as axes, axes and spears. Around 600 A.D., the Anasazi produced painted wares, and around 750 A.D., their pottery and the people who made it were advanced than those who were typically thought to be Pueblo. At the time, they were called "puebla" or "brasetans," a term for potters, but not necessarily the exact same people as the other groups. For the Anasazi, the term in this case, though controversial, describes the progressing Pueblo building culture of the group referred to as Puebla II. The antiquated basketmaker of Fremont, later on followed by the Ute and Navajo, was among the most famous of all antique basketmakers in the United States. The Anasazi were a group of individuals from the Pueblo, an area of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah. In 750 - 900 A.D., they began a transitional and ascendant phase that altered them from basketmaker to ancient Pueblo. The Archaicans abandoned searching and gathering wanderers and ruled the area for a few hundred years till the Ute and Navajo and then the Anasazi showed up. Big villages of masonry or kivas began to emerge, as did refined pottery. While deep pit homes continued to be utilized to a lower level, new structures were built in the type of pueblos, a Spanish term referring to the building and construction with narrow wood piles plastered with clay and covered with straw, hurries and other products. Throughout this time, the population began to focus in specific areas and small villages were abandoned. The shift from basketmaker to anasazi started with the arrival of the Fremont Indians at the end of the 19th and start of the 20th century. Although the Moabites are sandwiched in between the practically depleted resources of their forefathers and those who migrated west and north from the Native Americans, they appear to have actually maintained their traditional identity.
