Eric R. Force says: "When the Anasazi moved from southwest Colorado to the Chaco Canyon in 850 AD, they discovered an appropriate place for farming. Chacoan leaders saw a large floodplain in which the drainage was filled with sediment transferred by streams.Agriculture & Migration Chaco Canyon 190752631.webp This created a perfect environment for farming and the construction of the Chaco Canyon National Park. The perfect environment for farming in Chaco Canyon National Forest and other areas was to create a perfect environment for the advancement of agricultural techniques such as basket weaving, "Force said. A small population of basketweavers stayed in and around Chacao Canyon and established their cultivation technique around 800, when they developed a crescent-shaped stone complex including four or 5 living suites nearby to a large enclosed location reserved for religious events and ceremonies. The descendants, referred to as basketmakers, lived and farmed in the location for more than 1,000 years, according to the National Geographic Society. The Pueblo population, also known as the Anasazi, grew gradually and its members lived in larger and denser peoples. The flora of Chaco Canyon resembles that of the high deserts of The United States and Canada, with saber rattles and a number of types of cacti scattered all over. The location to the east is house to many temperate coniferous forests, however the canyon gets much less rainfall than lots of other parts of New Mexico at comparable latitudes and elevations. As a result, the canyon does not have the exact same greenery as other locations of the state, such as the Chaco Valley, where there are a large number of archaeological sites, some going back to the 10th century and others going back 10,000 years. Even in rainy seasons, the canyon can feed about 2,000 people, with about 1,500 people living in summer and about 3,200 in winter. The dominating barrenness of the plants and fauna is similar to ancient times, when the increasing growing of oil palms and other crops by the Chacoans might have robbed the canyon of all its wild plants and wildlife. It is also house to speakers of the Na - Dene language, who eventually ended up being the Navajo people these days.

The First Inhabitants –-- The Hopi or Hisatsinom

The Hopi, who call themselves the descendants of the Anasazi, changed their name from "Anasazis" to "Hisatsinom," implying "Ancient. " In many texts and scientists, however, the name "The Anasazi" has become a derogatory term for the native peoples of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Arizona.
