As a member of the Hohokam nation there are many things that we need to do daily in order to keep the nation successful. Every member in the nation has a job and specific duties the main part of the nation that keeps it successful is the irrigation system that we use. This system transports water through out the land that belongs the to the tribe. The irrigation system helps transport the water to the crops throughout the land and help the Hohokam become prosperous. Great agriculture leads to trades with other Indian nations, especially trading with the Anazasi nation our main trading partner for the esensials that we need. This is the way the Hohokam nation worked together to become prosperous.
The disappearance of the Hohokams is a mystery today. The theory that I believe that led to the disappearance of the Hohokams is that there was a drought that led to many problems. First the lack of water itself killed many people. Second, the drought killed off most of the agriculture and led to a lack of food. Due to the loss of agriculture the nation could not trade with other nations and could not feed its people. During this drought there was some internal problems because of the lack of food causing some members moving to other nations or forming there own nations. This theory has many stages but I believe without the drought the other problems would not occur.
