Fremont People, and Anasazi Basketmakers (dating back between 200 and 700 A.D.) have also
been found.  But it’s the Paiute Indians, who occupied the Bryce Canyon area for several hundred
years beginning around 1200 A.D., who really left their mark, hunting and gathering along the
Paunsaugunt Plateau.
