Anasazi

Facts

The Anasazi were located in what is now known as the four corners; Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico. They built their homes in the side of mountains or high cliffs (and called it "Mesa Verde"), and were very good rock climbers. Their villages were camouflage, so it would be hard for people to find them and attack. It was very hot where they settled, but living in a giant cave kept them cool. Their main crops were pumpkins, corn, and beans. The Anasazi watered their crops through irrigation. When it came to trading, they were known for their turquoise. The Anasazi civilization ended, because it might have gotten too hot, there might have been a global warming trend, it might have been a drought, or maybe they were just abandoned, but we don't know. We know them today as the Pueblo Indians.
