5/15/2019 Cave-7, North Fork Whiskers Draw, UT - Massacred 97 people that include children 1,500 years ago. Richard Wetherill, who is a pot hunter also discovered current Mesa Verde National Park. His group discovered human remaining in this cave floor when excavated at 1893. This area is like small an island, one side is tall cliff up and other side is ravine walls down, not the place to 100 people to live or gather. A question after visited this place, massacred 97 people at the same time is impossible here, that the case, was it a graveyard? Not easy to bring dead body here because tall ravine wall to climb up to get here and canyon floor is not easy to walk on. Not massacre nor graveyard, then why 97 human bodies buried here? Only I can think is...people came here to die, and a dozens people or two at a time, not easy to die so that they assisted death that explain the massacre injuries. Question is why people came to die - maybe some kind disease, like a smallpox epidemics??? Why here, not easy to come to because bad canyon configuration - maybe that the reason, people came here, so that rest in peace after die??? After people dead, buried bodies at the same area, so that they were not alone. If massacred, they don’t buried bodies in one area.
