Toozi What?

Just a few miles up the road from our home at Rancho Verde RV Park is another National Park Service site that displays a pueblo that shows an ancient village built by the Sinagua people. They were farmers and artists with trade connections that spanned hundreds of miles.

The site is called Tuzigoot (spelled with a “u”) which in Apache means “Crooked Water”, it contains 110 rooms and sits about 120 feet above the flood plain of the Verde River.

These sites were built about 1100 and inhabited until about the year 1400 when the Sinaguan people migrated further north.  As we walked the trail around the dwellings, it was fascinating to imagine how they lived and worked as a community.
