Petroglyphs near South Campground in Zion

Filed Under Panoramas


The Southgate Petroglyphs
The earliest evidence of people living in what is now Zion National Park dates back to the Archaic period. These people occupied the area from about 7,000 to 2,500 years ago. The area was next inhabited by prehistoric people of the Virgin Anasazi Pueblo culture, until about AD 1150. Archeologists believe that groups of Southern Paiutes were the last group of American Indians in Zion from approximately AD 1100 up until the time of European pioneer settlement, which in this area, began in the 1860’s. Descendants of each of these three cultural groups still live in the area today.
