History of the State of Arizona

For thousands of years, in the territory of modern Arizona, as well as in the rest of the US states, representatives of the indigenous population of North America, the Indians, lived.

The ancient peoples of the Pueblo (Anasazi), the Hohokam Indians, the Mogollon and others lived in Arizona. Their main occupation was agriculture, they grew corn and legumes. By the time Europeans arrived, Apaches and Navajos also lived here.

Although the first Europeans arrived in Arizona as early as 1528, the first explorer of the new lands was in 1539 the Franciscan friar Marcos de Niza. Following him, in 1540-1542, the southwest of the modern USA (Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas) was explored by an expedition led by the Spanish conquistador Francisco de Coronado. For the next three centuries, the land of Arizona was part of the colony of New Spain.

These expeditions did not find any deposits of gold or silver, nor rich Indian cities that the conquistadors could plunder, so Arizona did not attract the attention of the Spanish colonialists. The following expeditions came here only in the eighties and nineties of the 16th century, when silver was found in Arizona by the Spaniard Antonio de Espejo.

Nevertheless, there were no permanent settlements of Europeans here for a long time and the lands of Arizona remained under the rule of Indian tribes. As a result of cultural exchange, the Indians began to use horses (before the arrival of Europeans, they carried goods on dogs, and moved only on foot), to grow wheat, which is more resistant to the vagaries of the weather than corn. Unfortunately, the Europeans also brought infectious diseases to which the natives did not have immunity.

Since the beginning of the 17th century, the Spaniards tried to establish Christian missions in Arizona, but because of the hostility of the Indians, these attempts failed time after time. It was not until the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries that the permanent Jesuit mission of San Javier was founded near the modern city of Tucson.

At the beginning of the 18th century, prospectors flocked to Arizona in search of silver deposits. Some of them settled in the southern part of modern Arizona and took up agriculture. By the middle of the century, attempts by European settlers to move north began, but they faced strong resistance from the Indians.
