Montezuma's Castle National
The Sinagua people lived in the nearby foothills and the plateau beyond the Verde Valley. They were pithouse dwellers and dry farmers who depended on rain for their crops. After the Hohokam abandoned the area , the Sinagua moved down into the valley and started utilizing the irrigation systems left by the Hohokam. By 1125, they began to build above ground masonry structures and large pueblos on hilltops or alcoves of cliffs.
