Arches National Park Utah

Roughly two thousand years ago, the nomadic hunters and gatherers began cultivating certain plants and settled the Four Corners region. These early agriculturalists, known as ancestral Puebloans, raised domesticated maize, beans, and squash, and lived in villages like those preserved at Mesa Verde National Park.

As the ancestral Puebloan people were leaving, nomadic peoples such as the Navajo, Ute and Paiute entered the area and were here to meet the first Europeans in 1776
