In prehistoric times the Tewa were so beset by roving enemies that not a few of them, for purposes of defense, became cliff-dwellers. (See Volume XVII, illustrations facing pages 30, 32.) With a watchman posted in a niche of the cliff or on a commanding elevation, there was little chance of an enemy surprising laborers in the cornfields.
