Within walking distance is the new State Capitol build- ing which is constructed in the Indian ceremonial ''kiva" style to harmonize with its surroundings. Santa Fe is an important centre for Indian ceremonial dances, Spanish fiestas and rodeos. Canyon Road, an ancient Indian trail, is now bordered by about five miles of handi- craft and art exhibits, galler- ies and artists' studios while oniy a short distance from downtown are the Museum of Navaio Ceremonial Art and the Museum of International Folk Art. Just 31 miles west of Santa Fe, Bandelier National Monu- ment opens the door to life in New eight centuries ago. Deep in Frijoles Canyon are the ruins of many Irdian dwellings, while high above in the canyon wall are cave dwellings carved out of vol- canic rock. Abandoned All the dwellings, both high and low, have been abandon- ed for centuries, perhaps be- cause of drought, disease or attacks by nomadic Indian tribes. Whatever the cause for the communitys decline, present- day visitors encounter no great problems in visiting the ruins. They climb ladders into the cave dwellings on the cliff walls. And vender at the large adobe ruins in the base of the canyon, many of which were multi-unit dwell- ings. Some idea of the size of these multiple quarters at Bandelier is conveyed by the Long House which encom- passed 375 rooms. Even larger is the elliptical Tyuonyi Pueblo which in- cluded some 400 rooms and housed at least persons. Toe holds Still indented in the cliff wall are the finger and toe holds that enabled the inhabi- tants of Bandelier to climb to the mesa above, where they grew the staple foods of their diet corn, beans and squash. Another unique community, still home to a population of Indians, is located 75 miles north of Santa Fe surrounded by high moun- tains. When Spanish Conquista- dores first viewed Taos Pueb- lo from a distance, its sun- bathed adobe structures gave the appearance of a City of Gold, the final objective of their search. The Conquistadores have come and gene. But Taos Pueblo remains, a remark- able example of the con- tinuity of habitation which links the centuries past with contemporary Indian ilfe. Taos Pueblo's two .multi- storied buildings give it a strong claim to possessing the oldest high rise apart- ments in the nation. Though the ravages of time have taken their toll, the high rise and single storey adobe dwellings at Taos Pueblo remain remarkably well preserved. Even the out- door "hornos" or ovens used by the ancient Indian dwell- ers are intact. Narrow, wind J n g passage- ways intertwine between the pueblo buildings in a maze which is confusing to all ex- cept tile inhabitants, most of whom prefer to remain se- cluded. Unlike the usual conception of the American Indian, the pueblo dwellers of Taos and similar southwestern commu- nities cover themselves from head to foot in heavy woolen blankets. These blankets, which have decorative pat- terns, are worn for outer clothing both winter and sum- mer insulation against both heat and cold. About 160 miles from Taos, in the southwestern corner of Colorrclo Ourango. lie possibly the most dramatical- ly situated and, at the same time, most accessible ancient Indian ruins Mesa Verde. About years ago. a group of Indians selected this "green tabb'op" land to be their home. They lived first in pithouses (dwellings dug into the ground'. Then, about the middle of the 8th century, they built dwellings of poles, sticks and mud. Gradually, stone mason- More Indian story, photographs on Page 39 ry replaced the pole and mud construction and by the 12th century, some of these stone apartments stood three sto- ries high and contained more than 50 rooms each. Remains of both pithouses and mason- ry buildings are lUD visible today. Near the end of the 12th century, for some unknown reason, the inhabitants of Mesa Verde abandoned their masonry dwellings and moved into caves in the cliffs high above on the canyon wall. It was in these caves that the Indians carved out the d r a matically situated dwell- ings that are now the most popular feature of Mesa Verde National Park. Despite their strong defen- sive positions, Indians re- mained in the cliff dwellings less than 100 years. As else- where in the Southwest, mod- ern day researches have not found the answers to this exodus from the Indian strongholds. Farming WupatM National Monu- ment, 45 miles northeast of Flagstaff, Arizona, marks the site of an Indian farming community which prospered from 1120 to 1210 A.D. Water- retaining volcanic ash de- posited in the area by an eruption of Sunset Crater made the land it covered ex- cellent for cultivation. Wupatki, which means "tall house" in Hppi Indian lan- guage, is an impressive ruin. It contained more than 100 rooms, most of which have IMPORTANT NOTICE to LETHBRIDGE HERALD DISPLAY AND CLASSIFIED ADVERTISERS EFFECTIVE Friday, June DISPLAY ADVERTISING DEADLINES WILL BE AS FOLLOWS: ADVERTISEMENTS REQUIRING PROOFS (Minimum size !4 page) COPY AND MATERIAL MUST BE RECEIVED AT THE HERALD BY 12 NOON -4 PUBLISHING DAYS PRIOR TO PUBLICATION DEADLINE for MONDAY Is NOON PREVIOUS WEDNESDAY TUESDAY is NOON PREVIOUS THURSDAY WEDNESDAY is NOON PREVIOUS FRIDAY THURSDAY is NOON PREVIOUS SATURDAY FRIDAY is NOON PREVIOUS MONDAY SATURDAY is NOON PREVIOUS TUESDAY DISPLAY ADVERTISEMENTS NOT REQUIRING A PROOF MAY BE RECEIVED ONE DAY LATER 12 NOON 3 PUBLISHING DAYS PRIOR TO PUBLICATION CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING DEADLINES ARE UNCHANGED Al! regular and classified display must be In The Herald office 3 p.m. the day prior to publication a.m. Saturday for publication Monday For further information contact Display or Classified Advertising 328-4411 The letKbridge Herald ;
