The Pueblo People
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     The Pueblo people of the Southwest have a long history. Today we know them as the Hopi and Zuni, but their ancestors were probably a people know as the Anasazi. Much of their history is a mystery, but archeologists learn new things all the time.
 
2     Anasazi is a Navajo word meaning "ancient ones." They think that these people arrived in Southwest America as long ago as 5500 B.C. The people were already excellent basket weavers. They also used the fibers of the yucca plant for weaving.
 
3     The people lived in caves at first but soon learned to use adobe bricks and poles to make buildings. Some farming was done, but meat had to be hunted.
 
4     By about A.D. 700, the Anasazi were starting to build the pueblos we might see today. They were like square blocks of apartments stacked one on top of the other and reached by ladder.
