      • The Hopi could get water from springs. Each family had a deep hole called a cistern. A cistern was carved out of the mesa rock.
      • They stored extra water in the rock and in the winter you would put snow in it so it would melt and you could use it.

      • Didn’t use calendars to find out when to plant seeds they asked their sun watcher.
      • Sun watchers knew when to plant seeds by where the sun rose.
      • By looking at the position of the sun they knew when to perform certain ceremonies.
      • The time you planted your seeds was very important.
