Transcript *•••*••*•***• Presented this month . . . is ihe "Grand Canyon Stale." At the ri«hl is a view of the smith rim of the canyon., and the well-known exploratory mult- trip thiit leads to the (bottom of the canyon. This is the third in the Facts Forum Sew* pictorial series. Arkansas and A la ha ma were the two preceding states featured. ************* MONTEZUMA CASTLE . . . National Monument Me . aintenance of ilii,- site was undertaken in l')i)<> to preserve a remarkable group of Indian clilf dwellings dating from pre-Columbian lime-. Situated in the Verde Valley of central Vrizona, the foundation of tin* inaccurately called Montezuma Castle is nearly fiftj feel above the cliff base, and is almost forty feet high. The uncommon state of preservation ol iliis natural formation is due chiefly to the great shelving over- 11 a11•; of rock which has protected it from the elements. The castle could have accommodated twelve or fifteen cliff-dwelling families, possibly fifty people. The potter) made locallj al Monle/.unia Castle and in tlie \ erde \ alley '.-enerally, consisted mainly of plain brown or red ware, and rough gray ware, with plain or rather crude decoration in black paint. The prehistoric people of the Verde, although apparently liijzlilv talented along certain oilier lines, seem never to have developed a really ornamental painted pottery of their own. Instead ilies acquired decorated potterj from the north hy trade xvith the Flagstaff area and the Hopi count ry. A disastrous fire caused abandonment bj these dwellers, and it is likely that other troubles must have befallen them. While their cliff bouses were safe from invasion, tlie people were not safe against occasional sieges, causing probable lood shortage and epidemics. \ a I main of the cliff dwellers must have gone into northern Arizona to join ihe friendly Hopi-. with whom ibex bad long established trade relations. Modern Hopi traditions --till indicate some ancestral origins in the Verde Valley. 1956 ***••••••••****•••••* riwto urtesy nj Phoenix Chamber of Comn
