"Outside Terraces" Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument Things to Do Tip by Stephen-KarenConn

 
 

In good weather, the Mogollon performed many tasks on the outside ledges in front of their dwellings. We know that these people made cotton cloth, plaited sandals from yucca leaves, wove mats and baskets, painted designs on clay pots and jars, and fashioned jewelry out of shells and feathers.

Making and repairing tools for farming, and hunting was another constant job. Then, of course, there was corn to grind and other foods to prepair. This was a busy place in the thirteenth century, with much work to be done. All the while, the people probably talked and gossiped and kept track of young children playing nearby.
