Southwest Indians


Griffin, Matthew, Eric, Triston, Juma


The southwest Indians ate corn, bread, squash, and small animals like rabbit. They grew different kinds of corn and ground the kernels to make flour for a paper thin bread called piki. They also planted sunflower seeds and gathered berries.

  • Southwest indians lived in pueblos made of adobe bricks. These shelters were primary built on cliffs with large shallow caves. Not only did these shelters have doors on the sides but also in the ceilings. A ladder was used to enter and exit the pueblo. Other Southwest Indians lived in hogans made of sticks and clay. The door to a hogan always faced east to see the rising sun.
