The Anasazi's were a Native American tribe that live mainly in the Southwestern region of the United States. The Anasazi lived in steep canyons for protection. The Anasazi built several different kinds of shelters. A pithouse was a house formed from logs in the shape of a cone. The Anasazi Indians also lived in cliff dwellings which were built from rocks under some overhanging cliffs. Adobe homes were made from sun dried mud bricks.
