Dorothy FireCloud, Sicangu Lakota, is currently the superintendent of Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot National Monuments.
Studies in the field were conducted at four locations in Arizona: Montezuma Castle National Monument (Montezuma Castle); Tuzigoot National Monument (Tuzigoot); Tonto National Monument (Tonto); Ash Creek (1 km W of State Route 188, Lake Roosevelt vicinity, Gila County).
Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot are located in the Verde Valley, northeastern Yavapai County, Arizona, and are characterized by semidesert grassland habitat.
Investigators have focused on Tuzigoot, the hillside stone-walled site nearest the Mingus Mountain mineralized deposits that Native Americans were quarrying for pigments from 1580 to 1605, and that the United Verde Copper Company exploited beginning in the late nineteenth-century.(3) Steadman Upham analyzed Tuzigoot as a Western Puebloan site whose inhabitants were integrated into an extensive commodity exchange network beginning in the fourteenth century.(4) On the premise that the largest Puebloan settlements were "likely to be the loci of political and economic control," Upham identified sixty-seven Western Pueblo settlements having more than fifty to one thousand rooms.
A report to the National Park Service hypothesized that Tuzigoot was a Northern Piman site at the end of the sixteenth century.(5) One argument is that when Antonio de Espejo's Spaniards visited the middle Verde Valley in 1583 the natives initially fled from the explorers.
Part of a trio of National Park Service sites including Tuzigoot Monument, Montezuma's Well is a natural limestone sinkhole formed when an immense underground cavern collapsed some two million years ago.

We used a multifaceted approach to conduct surveys at Montezuma Castle, Tonto, and Tuzigoot national monuments.

On May 7 the prospectors rode six leagues to a marsh by an abandoned pueblo(19)-probably Tuzigoot. On May 8, the prospectors crossed the north-south flowing Verde River and, following Native guides, climbed four leagues to the quarries.(20) The clear contrast between Schroeder's comment and Perez de Luxan's report shows who actually "misreads or misinterprets documentary statements."
