Nevada - Valley of Fire State Park:

Prehistoric Man

Prehistoric users of the Valley of Fire included Basket Maker people and later the Anasazi Pueblo farmers from the nearby fertile Moapa Valley. The span of approximate occupation has been dated from 300 B.C. to 1150 A.D. The Southern Paiute visited this area until historic times. Their visits probably involved hunting, food gathering, and religious ceremonies. Scarcity of water would have limited the length of their stay. Examples of petroglyph/rock art created by these ancient peoples can be found at several sites within the park.
