Photographer's Note

In late Archaic times, their trade with people to the south and west introduced settled agriculture, and they cultivated corn, beans, and squash. By 1200 the La Junta people, farmers related to the upper Rio Grande Pueblo-an people, farmed floodplain areas west of today's park. In the 1500's Spaniards, enslaved the Indians and greatly transformed their culture. Pushed south by Comanches, Apaches moved to this area in the 1700's.
