Indian Heritage of the Southwest
Since the time of prehistory, ten to twelve, perhaps twenty or more millennia past, "The People" (Indians, as Columbus misnamed them) have made their homes in North America. Here they thrived; adapting to their natural world, building complex civilizations, creating individual and separate tribes, each with its own lifestyle, language, religion and customs.
In the Southwest, where the past seems just yesterday and history is all around the Indian has maintained harmony with "Mother Earth" and "Father Sky", blending what is modern with what is traditional like no other culture within America's great boundaries. Nowhere in all our vast country is there a people more capable of expressing through their songs, dancesd, arts and crafts the beauty of nature, the mystery of life.
