“Water Management at Mesa Verde by Native Americans”

Mr. Wright will talk about the early times in Colorado of 750 to 1300 AD when the Early Americans, that are sometimes called Anasazi, lived and developed water features in the Four Corners area.  He will explain that these ancient people were well organized, they were industrious, and they created sustainable villages.  Sites that will discussed will include small storage reservoirs both on canyon bottoms and mesa tops where their pueblos were situated.  Eventually, the ancient peopled moved to cliff dwellings for improved security
