The Fremont culture Utah, USA. About 2,500 years ago, a very unique culture of Fremont Indians began to develop in Utah and parts of Nevada, Idaho and Colorado. The culture received its name from the Fremont River Valley, Utah, where these people lived and even reached as far as Cedar City. Their culture was first defined in 1931 by a young Harvard anthropology student, Noel Morss, who worked along the Fremont River in south-central Utah. About 1250 AD, artifacts of this rather unique culture began to disappear from the region. Among them are “one-rod-and-bundle basketry”, thin-walled gray pottery and curious small clay people figurines, decorating with necklaces, ear bobs, necklaces, clothing, hair and facial decorations and anatomical characteristics. The purpose of these figurines is still unknown, but it has been suggested the artifacts may have been associated with fertility or religious rituals of the Fremont people. Not only artifacts began to disappear; also the Fremont Culture began to decline about 1150 AD and ceased to exist by AD 1300. New people moved in to Fremont territory but what happened to the Fremont Indians is not entirely explained. Comment | Tag | Share Read Conscious Articles on our website. Link in Bio.
