DescriptionNative American populations have cut wood for shelters and fuel, gathered native plants, hunted game animals, and collected various other resources, such as obsidian for making chipped-stone tools, clay for crafting pottery vessels, and stone slabs for producing piki (corn meal paper bread) griddles, in the Valles Caldera National Preserve (VCNP) for countless centuries (chapter 2). Archaeological evidence recounted in chapter 2 documents that Pueblo groups from the upper Río Jémez Valley farmed the Banco Bonito within the VCNP during pre-Columbian times. Although the available evidence is scanty, it appears likely that Pueblo groups caught trout in the Valles Caldera’s former marsh lands and in streams for immediate consumption while they were staying in the locale for other purposes.
