Overview

Different cultures surounding Tuzigoot had different resources found in their regions, not found in other areas.  In order to survive, everyone needed to trade products they produced to other Cultures who then traded for some of their products.  Food and clothing were big trade items... but macaw parrots and turquoise jewelry too!
