This book is a collection of information about the history and present situation of Native Americans, who for centuries lived and still live in the South-western area of the United States. The history of these people begins in the pre-historic era. They were among the first civilized people on earth to build multi-storied buildings. When the Spanish met them for the first time they were amazed at their kindness and civility. That is why the Spanish called them “Pueblos” meaning “people of the villages.” After the defeat of the Spanish from America, an article of the peace treaty provided that the Spanish names would be preserved wherever they existed in the ceded territory. Although this is very brief history of the Pueblos, it reminds the reader what difficult times these people went through in the past five centuries before assuming their rightful place in American society as proud Native Americans. Finally, in the past few decades there have been interesting discussions about “Extra Terrestrial” relations of ancient civilizations in India, the Middle East, Egypt, Peru and Ancient Pueblos of the Southwest. There is a brief mention of these discussions at the end of the book.

*Includes pictures of Anasazi art, artifacts, and ruins. *Explains the origins, history, religion, and social structure of the Anasazi *Explains the relationship between the Anasazi and the Zuni *Includes a Bibliography for further reading. From the "Trail of Tears" to Wounded Knee and Little Bighorn, the narrative of American history is incomplete without the inclusion of the Native Americans that lived on the continent before European settlers arrived in the 16th and 17th centuries. Since the first contact between natives and settlers, tribes like the Sioux, Cherokee, and Navajo have both fascinated and perplexed outsiders with their history, language, and culture. In Charles River Editors' Native American Tribes series, readers can get caught up to speed on the history and culture of North America's most famous native tribes in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. When European settlers and later American settlers came into contact with Native American tribes on the continent, they were frequently unable to differentiate between the subcultures within individual tribes, leading to all kinds of misunderstandings. When the Spanish came into contact with different tribes in the Southwest, they categorized several of them as Pueblo. Thus, while most Americans have heard of the Pueblo and Navajo, many remain unfamiliar with distinctions within the tribes. The Pueblo fascinated those who came across their settlements, especially those located in desert regions and the sides of cliffs that involved the use of adobe mud, stone, carving homes out of cliffs. One such settlement, Oraibi, was created around 1100 A.D. and remains one of the oldest continuously inhabited settlements in North America. The Spanish were so intrigued by the structure of the communities that they gave the natives the name Pueblo, a term they used to measure certain sizes for their own settlements. Today's Puebloan tribes are descended from tribes known as the "Ancestral Puebloan People," one of which was the Anasazi. The name Anasazi came from their enemies; it is a Navajo word that means "enemy ancestor." While that name understandably continues to offend the descendants of the Anasazi, it also underscores that there is still a lot of uncertainty regarding the history of the Anasazi. It is still unclear what the Anasazi called themselves, and though they resided near the "Four Corners" area of Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico for more than 700 years, they mysteriously abandoned their settlements shortly after they truly began to flourish around 1050-1150 A.D. Despite the unknowns, it is likely that all of the Puebloan tribes today are at least partially descended from the Anasazi, particularly the Zuni. Through ongoing research and Zuni oral traditions, archaeologists and anthropologists continue to try to piece together the history and culture of the Anasazi, even as their ruins continue to fascinate tourists nearly a millennium after they were constructed. Native American Tribes: The History and Culture of the Anasazi comprehensively covers the facts, mysteries, and theories surrounding the ancient Native Americans who built the elaborate and impressive settlements in the cliffs and deserts of the Southwest. Along with pictures and a bibliography, you will learn about the Ancient Pueblo like you never have before, in no time at all.

Excerpt: Ancient Pueblo People or Ancestral Pueblo peoples were an ancient Native American culture centered on the present-day Four Corners area of the United States, comprising southern Utah, northern Arizona, northwest New Mexico, and southern Colorado. They lived in "houses" called pueblos in which they lifted up ladders during enemy attacks, providing the Pueblo peoples security. The cultural group has often been referred to in archaeology as the Anasazi, although the term is not preferred by contemporary Pueblo peoples. The word Anas z is Navajo for "Ancient Ones" or "Ancient Enemy." Archaeologists still debate when this distinct culture emerged. The current consensus, based on terminology defined by the Pecos Classification, suggests their emergence around the 12th century BCE, during the archaeolog...

Chaco Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, Mesa Verde, Hovenweep . . . For many, such historic places evoke images of stone ruins, cliff dwellings, pot shards, and petroglyphs. For others, they recall ancestry. Remnants of the American Southwest's ancestral Puebloan peoples (sometimes known as Anasazi) have mystified and tantalized explorers, settlers, archaeologists, artists, and other visitors for centuries. And for a select group of writers, these ancient inhabitants have been a profound source of inspiration. Collected here are more than fifty selections from a striking body of literature about the prehistoric Southwest: essays, stories, travelers' reports, and poems spanning more than four centuries of visitation. They include timeless writings such as John Wesley Powell's The Exploration of the Colorado River and Its Tributaries and Frank Hamilton Cushing's "Life at Zuni," plus contemporary classics ranging from Colin Fletcher's The Man Who Walked Through Time to Wallace Stegner's Beyond the Hundredth Meridian to Edward Abbey's "The Great American Desert." Reuben Ellis's introduction brings contemporary insight and continuity to the collection, and a section on "reading in place" invites readers to experience these great works amidst the landscapes that inspired them. For anyone who loves to roam ancient lands steeped in mystery, Stories and Stone is an incomparable companion that will enhance their enjoyment.
