#ZuniIndian Pueblo is the place of First Contact between Europeans and Native Peoples in the Southwest – an encounter that occurred over eighty years before the more widely known Plymouth Rock landing!

Southwest #TurquoiseMines have the most beautiful Turquoise Stones. The Native American Silversmiths  in the Southwest use these stones when making their jewelry. This art has been handed down from one generation to the next. Here is an article about a few of the Turquoise mines. Donna Bunnell

High Grade Kingman Spider Web Turquoise

The Mineral Park Mine, in the Cerbat Mountains 14 miles northwest of Kingman, was first mined by Indians centuries before white man came to the area. It is one of the three sites of prehistoric mining localities in the state of Arizona. Mineral Park was the most extensively worked area by the Indians of the three. S.A. “Chuck” Colbaugh found a cache of stone hammers uncovered in ancient trenches and tunnels, when he had the turquoise mining concession in May of 1962. Ithaca Peak and Turquoise Mine (formally called Aztec Mountain or Aztec Peak) are the most famous of the peaks in the area containing turquoise.
