The village site was occupied as early as 8000 B.C. by hunters who stayed only long enough to prepare their kill. From the time of Christ to 1000 A.D., migratory people of this area practiced limited agriculture.The nearby fields and streams offered an abundance of nuts, fruits, game and fish.These people shaped this mound and built a crude temple on its summit to house their sacred images.
