Anasazi city Anasazi Tribe Owen Riordan, Period 6 Social Studies The Anasazi were a tribe of ancient people whose civilization existed for more than 1,000 years and was in existence during the time Jesus Christ was alive. Their culture was important to the development of several later tribes from the area of the Four Corners (Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona) in the modern United States. This paper will examine how they lived, their scientific investigations, their artwork, and their legacy. Several Anasazi tribes lived in Chaco Canyon, Casas Grandes, and Mesa Verde in what is now the southwest United States. These areas were normally dry, and usually had rivers nearby.
