Freeport, Maine: A Wonderful Community

North West New Mexico's Chaco National Monument

Lets visit Chaco Canyon National Historical Park in Northwest New Mexico from Freeport. The Chaco canyon was the hub of a pre-Colombian culture that prospered from the 9th to the 12th centuries CE in the San Juan Basin of South-west America. The Chacoan civilisation marks a single time in the history of an ancient people now known as "Ancestral People" because of their relationship to modern Southwestern native individuals whose lives tend to be arranged around peoples or community houses in style apartments. Chacoans erected epical public building, unprecedented within the prehistoric North American environment, which until historic times remained unsurpassed in size and complexity - an feat that needed long-term planning as well as important social structure. The precise harmonization of these buildings with the cardinal direction and the cyclic position of the sun and the moon and a wealth of exotic commercial commodities found in these buildings are indicative of Chaco being an advanced civilisation with deep spiritual ties to the surrounding landscape. This cultural fluorescence is all the more amazing because it was carried out in the high-altitude, semi-arid desert of the plateau of Colorado where survival was a feat, and because the long-term planning and organisation. This dearth of written record is also contributing to a mystique that is certain Chaco. Many tiresome dilemmas regarding Chacoan Society remain only partially solved despite decades of study, with the evidence limited to items and architecture.
