The Sinagua

The earliest peoples arrived in the Verde Valley about 11,500 years ago. These early people practiced a hunting and gathering economy until approximately A.D. 1 when agriculture appeared. The Sinagua, whose Spanish name means "without water." appreared at this time. They farmed and traded extensively in this area until about A.D. 1400. Examples of the structures the Sinagua constructed include Palatki Ruin, which offers glimpses of the past depicted in painted rock art called "pictographs," as well as the ruin itself. Honanki, another nearby Sinagua ruin included at least 60 rooms and more pictographs. Southeast of Sedona is Montezuma's Castle and Montezuma's Well, good examples of cliff dwellings and early irrigated farming. Tuzigoot, west of Sedona in Clarkdale, is a pueblo and more typical of what the communities in the Verde Valley were like during the last phase of Sinagua occupation. The V Bar V Ranch petroglyph site is located east of Sedona and it noted for its finely crafted animal and geometric forms.
