The Pueblo
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     The Pueblo Indians came from one tribe. Now we know most of them as the Hopi and Zuni people. The name pueblo is Spanish. It means "village."
 
2     The first Pueblo people were called Anasazi. They started out living in caves. Then they learned to build homes. They wove baskets.
 
3     The people grew corn and pumpkins for food. Later on, they grew beans. They also used wild plants.
 
4     To keep food safe, they kept it in big pits under the ground. The people also learned to tame turkeys. That way, they could always have some meat.
 
5     Over the years, the people changed. They learned to grow more food. They did not hunt so much.
