Native Americans of the Southwest, their history and culture are the primary focus of a new website launched to provide valuable information to the site's visitors, SouthwestIndianCulture.com.
"Southwest Indian culture has evolved over the course of thousands of years and historians believe they crossed over land bridges that once connected the continents," said Ruth Framington with SouthwestIndianCulture.com. "Since the earliest days, American Indians have played a vital role in shaping the culture of the Southwest and their influence remains strong today."
Visitors to the site will find valuable information about Southwest Indian culture and traditions and gain a closer look into lives and culture of Native Americans.
"Traditionally, American Indians of the Southwest lived in communities divided by clans," Framington said. "Today, the tribal life os one that combines that tradition and heritage with modern conveniences. Tribes in the region have maintained their culture and beliefs against overwhelming odds."
SouthWestIndianCulture.com was established to offer readers a new look and perspective on Native American history in the United States. The information offered was carefully researched and written in an effort to ensure accuracy and respect for the tribal history in the Southwestern United States."
