Where did the anasazi live and what time did they live there?

They lived in what is today the present day Four corners area in the States of Colorado, Arizona, Utah and New Mexico. They is also evidence reaching into the Great Plains, in areas near the Cimarron and Pecos rivers, and in the Galisteo Basin. They were one of four main overlapping ancient Southwest cultures. The others were the Mogollon, Hohokam and Patayan.

The earliest evidence in this area was around 7000 to 1500 BC.

The period from 700-1130 CE had the most extensive population, building and reach. After 11150 there was a 300 year drought and many sites were abandoned from then until about 1300. The Mississippi Mound builders culture collapsed around the same time. From 1300 onwards until today they have lived where the Modern Pueblo people live now. They are their direct descendants so the are alive and thriving today.

Why do Englishmen call the people in America 'Americans'?

America is named after explorer Amerigo Vespucci. The official name of our country is United States of America thus we are called "Americans" not just by the Britons but by most nations around the world.

As noted above, the Americas were named after Amerigo Vespucci, an Italian navigator working in service to the Portuguese. This naming first was popularized by a German map-maker (Martin Waldseemuller), who in 1507 produced a map labeling the newly discovered continents as "America".

In common English, the term "America" can be applied to two entities: either the entire New World landmass (North, Central, and South Americas), or to the nation of The United States of America. At the time of creation of the U.S.A., it was still very common to refer to the New World as "the Americas" (note the plural and capitalization), though the use of "america" (lower case, singular) was uncommon, and the adjective "american" was even less common - the reason american was seldom used was because it was exceedingly vague, and, in any case, the English tended to prefer the terms "the Colonies" or "the New World". It is unclear why the Founding Fathers of the U.S.A. chose to use the singular in the name, rather than the plural.

In any case, after the founding of the U.S.A., both the new country's citizen and the British began to use the shortened "American" to describe nationals of the U.S.A., and now used "America" (capitalized) as a shorthand for the United States. This is likely due to similar shortening of "Great Britain" to "British", and is a common usage pattern in English (that is, the use of the last noun in a long formal name as a "nickname" for the thing).

Both British and American English has not come up with a suitable equivalent to "European" to describe a person who comes from the New World, as the common usage of "American" has now been completely changed to refer solely to the U.S.A. English uses the awkward "North American", "Central American", and "South American" to refer to those areas.

Other languages (chiefly Spanish and Portuguese) still retain the secondary meaning of "american" (non-capitalized) to refer to the entire New World. However, in any context or language, the proper meaning of a capitalized "American" specifically refers to the U.S.A.

pueblos, which are homes, often multi story like apartments made of stone walls with mud mortar and mud plaster and wood beams.

How can we use our natural resources wisely?

We have to use our natural resources in a sustainable fashion, that is, so they won't run out.

Timber can be used for building and other important things if we use plantation timber, that is, if a new tree is growing to maturity as we cut down the first one.

There are still plenty of reserves of coal, but by burning it we create other problems, namely, adding carbon dioxide to the greenhouse gases.

The same goes for oil and natural gas.

Coal, oil and natural gas are chiefly used to provide electricity and to power vehicles. We need to take advantage of the abundance of solar, wind, wave, tidal and thermal energy that is free, renewable and sustainable. These resources will provide more than enough green electricity which can then power all the industry, homes and transport that we need.

By having a rethink about the advisability of having a throw away culture in nearly every thing that is produced. Once upon a time it was possible to repair an item, now you have to toss it out and get a new one. Every time you get a new mobile phone you are forced to get a new charger, because the parts are deliberately made just that little bit different. Instead of reusing the charger it sits in a drawer some where and another lot of copper has to be produced, turned into wire, insulated, manufactured, packaged, and transported all to satisfy the greed of industry gone wild. This is just one small example of the same sort of thing happening all over the world.

What tribes did the Anasazi fight?

There is evidence that in the 1200s in the Dolores and Kayenta Anasazi areas there was violence and warfare. It is thought that perhaps it was with Athabaskan or Numic speaking peoples that they were fighting with. They were moving into the area at that time. There are also signs of religious and cultural upheaval at that time so it could have been internal conflict as well. The Katchina religion and different living patterns happened soon after this period. The Navajo have cultural traditions of something despotic happening in some of the Pueblos at that time period. There could be some truth to it or it could be post facto explanations.

Earlier than this, there is no evidence that they fought. But there structure of some of the dwellings in some places suggest a need for defense.

The Arid Southwest, mainly in southwest Arizona and New Mexico.

The descendants of the Anasazi are the modern Pueblo peoples, there are 21 today. Most live where they can irrigate or it is high enough for snow to add moisture to the soil. Some Pueblo clans or peoples may also descend from the Hohokam as well as the Mogollon.

The descendants of the Hohokam probably the modern Tohono O'odham and the Akimel O'odham and Sobaipuri (also called Papago and Pima).

What are some survival techniques of Denmark?

DENMARK WAS THE ONLY COUNTRY OCCUPIED BY THE GERMANS WHOSE JEWISH POPULATION REMAINED UNAFFECTED FOR THE MOST PART DURING THE WAR YEARS. THE PRIMARY REASON WAS THAT THE GERMAN OCCUPIERS WERE NOT THE SS BUT WERE THE REGULAR WEHRMACHT. THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE DANISH PEOPLE WENT ON THEIR BUSINESS WITHOUT MUCH HARASSMENT FROM THE GERMANS-MAYBE BECAUSE OF THEIR "NORDIC" RACE WHICH HITLER ADMIRED. THERE WAS LITTLE IN THE WAY OF A RESISTANCE MOVEMENT BUT FOR THOSE WHO ACTIVELY OPPOSED THE GERMANS THERE WERE COUNTLESS ISLANDS AND RUGGED COASTAL TERRAIN TO HIDE FROM THE GESTAPO AND THE OCCUPIERS.

How do you make a model of a cliff?

well there's many way's one of them is to get a false roof tile (things you somtimes get in schools) and cut them with a atanley into strips. Then ctack them tpwards and glue with wood/PVA glue. Then after it's dry get a wire brush and scrape the front then joust paint ___________________________OR__________________________ get some wood blocks and mold them into a rough shape of your clift. then simply coner with plaster. AND IT'S VERY IMPORTANT to cover the wet plaster with some scrunched up kitchen foil to give a impression (or roll into a ball and dab a phew patches here and there) joust wait for it to fry, peel the foil off, and paint. You an use lots of sheets of polystyrene to build up the side and cover with plaster. ___________________________OR__________________________ Get a brown tile, cover the back of the area that you want to be a clift and simply pot cork bark on the front (i use hornby rock material (R.8070)

I believe the mount gives pitchers more leverage and also improves pitching to batters. Throwing off flat ground requires more effort if you are going to maintain the velocity of a pitcher.

Hopi Indians

What tradition did the hopi and the anasazi share?

The Hopi were where they are now when the Anasazi were active in the same general area. The Hopi say, and science confirms, that some of there clans came from Anasazi areas. So, the biggest thing they share is that the Hopi are direct descendants of the Anasazi. Because of this they share: pottery traditions, weaving traditions, they both farm corn, beans, and squash and sunflowers and turkeys, and they share home building and kiva building styles. We think the kachina religion arose at the end of the Anasazi era. If so, they share that too. We don't know, because there are no written records, but they may share clan names, origin stories, general theology and cosmology as well.

What is the American way of life?

In it's most simplistic form, it is the ability to choose one's own path in life. It is the recognition of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is equality and justice for all. It is the ability to have freedom to worship and practice one's religion. It is the ability to prosper in the appropriate way, without persecution because of race, ethnic origin, age, sex, religion etc. It's the ability to be FREE!! This is not to say we do not have problems, but it is the most enjoyable and beneficial life style I know of.
