The First Masters Of The Sonoran Desert — Hohoham   Leave a comment

One of the programs the Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) offer elementary school children is title, “Back To The Past.” The program centers on the early people of southern Arizona — the Hohoham.  There are several archeological sites in the Hohokam in the Tucson area, some which we have visited. However, the best know site is the Casa Grande Ruins National Monument, which preserves remains of the Hohokam-era farming community. Since becoming an SCVN member, I have been very interested in visiting the preserved remains of  a Hohokam village at Casa Grande. Joy and I were finally able to visit the Casa Grande Ruins last Friday.
