In the southwest their environment can be very harsh or very nice. it is also very dry in the southwest because most of it is in a desert. Since it is in a desert they build houses like hogans, pueblos, and cliff houses. Some of these houses help them to survive in the tough environment and others protect them from enemies.
For their food source in the southwest they would hunt for snakes and rabbits. They would take prickly pears off cactus and take berries off bushes. Last they would dry farm crops and other things.
In their daily lives they would get feathers as fashion. Also for art they would make jewelry like turquoises and silver necklaces. These help a lot with trading to America and other countries.
