This is the Seventh of Twenty Four of my Grand Canyon Series.

Taken along the Hermit's Trail of the south rim. The American Indian Tribe, the Paiutes call the plateau that the canyon cuts thru Kaibab or "Mountain Lying Down" The name "Grand Canyon" was consistently used and published in 1870's.

About 2,000 ancestral Puebloan sites have been found within park boundaries, the most impressive of which is the Tusayan Pueblo. ueblo is a Spanish word meaning town. There were more Indian tribes that moved to the Grand Canyon. The last of these tribes were the Navajo. This note was based on
