The word Anasazi belongs to the Navajo language and means "the ancient ones". This tribe is thought to have flourished and mysteriously disappeared between 550 and 1300 CE in the area of Mesa Verde , Colorado in the US. Historians, archaeologists, researchers and photographers have studied the tribe because many elements of their origins and their evolution remain an enigma. In fact, the Anasazi civilization was not uncovered by the archaeologist’s hoe, but by William Henry Jackson , a photographer who in 1870 found ruins of buildings belonging to this civilization.

Beyond the advanced architecture and advanced, for its time, population, their link to the ancient Greek civilization is also noteworthy. While the word Anaasází in Navajo means the "Ancient Ones" or "Ancient Enemy", there is also another explanation if you look at the word from a Greek perspective. In Greek Anasazi is analysed in ‘Anasa’ and ‘Zi’. The first word in Greek means ‘Breath’ and the second ‘Lives’. One of the speculations is that ‘Anasa’ was the Queen of the Anasazi and specifically one of the Queens of the Amazons. So the name translates to ‘Long live the Queen’.

Yet the Anasazi abandoned everything they built, leaving behind a greater mystery to torment archaeologists. For years the prevailing scenario has attributed the tribe’s disappearance to drought and lack of food. But common objections have been raised pointing out that, most likely, if they couldn’t find food the logical thing would have been to move on, not to disappear. That is why latter studies point to some spiritual and religious belief changes. It looks as though the tribe was "angry with their gods", and that is where the cause of the civilization’s disappearance should be looked for .
