Sedona Red Rock Country

Sedona has been continually inhabited for over 12,000 years most of that by Paleo-Indian, Clovis and Folsom culture hunter/gatherers. Around 300 B.C. more sedentary groups with small gardens and ideas from Mexican cultures, started the first hamlets and villages we see the ruins of today. Archeologist call them the Sinagua culture. However for many reasons these people abandoned their little villages and pueblo style dwellings around the year 1450 A.D.  The Apache's and Yavapai now live and represent the Native Americans in the surrounding area today.
