Between 700 and about 1300, the Anasazi Indians
lived in most of the current Southwest United States.
They were mostly farmers, planting and harvesting,
living off agriculture and very little meat due to a lack of
government subsidies. They built their homes inside the
moutains, cliffs and caves, usually near water sources.
Because they were so short (average height was about
five feet tall), doors were tiny and very high up,
sometimes in the ceiling, accessible only by ladder. In
1300, the Anaszi suddenly left. There were no signs of
conflict, yet they left all their stuff. Some feel this is
indirect evidence of the earliest Republicans, who probably evicted them.
