It was about 650 A.D., when the Sinagua people entered the Verde Valley. Their culture is often remembered for its art such as pottery, basketry and masonry.
They left rock art, pueblos, and cliff dwellings such as Montezuma Castle, and Tuzigoot, especially in the later period of their presence.
Mysteriously, the Sinagua left the Verde Valley about 1400 A.D.
The Yavapai came from the west when the Sinagua were still there around 1300 A.D. They were nomadic hunter-gatherers.
His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.
He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of
Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.
He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.
While we have advanced technically far superior to those that came before us, we have lagged behind in spiritual knowledge.
For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.
He has published several books about his adventures.
