Besh-Ba-Gowah of Globe, Arizona. Just off of Interstate 60.

Besh-Ba-Gowah is the site of an ancient Salado village, which was inhabited from about A.D. 1,225-1,400 .

A Google Earth Map search marks Besh-Ba-Gowah at about: 33o 22' 53.70" N 110o 46' 22.16" W. It is at about 3,638 feet elevation.

The Salado:

The Salado people refers to a mixed culture that existed in the Tonto Basin of southeastern Arizona from about 1,150 AD through the mid 1,400's AD.

Some think that their culture emerged from the older Hohokam Culture.

Characteristics of the Salado culture include very distinctive Salado Polychrome pottery, communities within walled adobe compounds, and the burial of the dead, rather than cremation, which was typical of the Hohokam and others.

The Salado were very good farmers, using very simple irrigation techniques to water their fields of corn, beans, pumpkins, amaranth, and cotton.

They also hunted local game and gathered buds, leaves, and roots to supplement their diet.

They also traded with other cultures that visited the area, as indicated by many archaeological finds of seashells from the Gulf of California, and even macaw feathers from Mexico.

We really know very little about who the Salado were. They left no written record of their existence, no chronology of events that shaped their society.

They existed as a culture that we can recognize only for a short 300 years and then for unknown reasons they disappeared.

We only have a few signs of their life; in their pottery, in remnants of their fabric, in smoke stains from their cook fires, and in hand prints on their pueblo walls.
