Anasazis

Les Anasazis sont des Amérindiens du sud-ouest de l’Amérique du Nord qui étaient répartis en plusieurs groupes dans les États actuels du Colorado, de l’Utah, de l’Arizona et du Nouveau-Mexique. Leur civilisation, similaire à certaines autres cultures d'Oasisamérique comme les Hohokams et les Mogollon, a laissé de nombreux vestiges monumentaux et culturels sur plusieurs sites, dont deux sont classés sur la liste du patrimoine mondial établie par l'UNESCO. Ces vestiges témoignent d'une maîtrise de techniques de céramique, de tissage, d'irrigation, d'observations astronomiques et d'un système d'expression pictural[1]. Actuellement, les descendants des Anasazis, les Zuñis et les Hopis de l’Arizona et du Nouveau-Mexique, perpétuent certaines de leurs traditions.

This was the beginning of an archeological database, to which, we proposed to add thermal infrared multispectral data. If our sensors could locate prehistoric features, this would prove that using remote sensing technology could work for archeology. The Thermal Infrared Multispectral Scanner (TIMS) was flown by NASA over Chaco Canyon for the first time in spring of 1982. TIMS measures temperature differences near the ground, it has five meter resolution. Prehistoric roads from 900 or 1000 AD were detected. Why were the Chaco roads designed with exacting linearity, which surmounted any topographic obstruction, built to a width of 20 feet or more, and constructed by people who did not even employ beast of burden in their lives?

This is the long-awaited sequel to Anna Sofaer's classic film THE SUN DAGGER, which changed forever our perception of America's earliest Indian peoples. THE MYSTERY OF CHACO CANYON examines the deep enigmas presented by the massive prehistoric remains found in Chaco Canyon in northwestern New Mexico. It is the summation of 20 years of research. The film challenges the notion that Chaco Canyon was primarily a trade and redistribution center.
