10. Genral Information about the state
* History.-
As it was the case in most of the northern territories of the country, the first Inhabitants of the present day state of Chihuahua belonged to violent nomadic or semi-nomadic ethnic groups which left little or no trace of their existence upon the arrival of the Spanish invaders. The major native groups that occupied the area include the Tarahumaras, Tepehuanes, Tubas, Jumiles, Pimas, Conchos, Salineros, Guarijios and Chisos. The archeological site of Paquime and the one known as 40 Casas or forty houses, are two of the few traces remaining from these cultures and which represent the most valuable pre-Spanish legacy in the north of Mexico. In 1824, Chihuahua becomes a state of the Mexican Federation, and is given its local constitution on December the 7th 1825. During the Mexican Revolution, the state contributed to the cause of the people through two great revolutionary leaders, Fransisco Pancho Villa and Pascual Orozco. The first armed revolt by the rebels took place in the local town of Cuchillo Parado (Standing Knife), on November the 14th 1910. * Population.- 777.166

Near the shore there are simple cabins, and primitive camping is allowed. But most people stop here only briefly on van or Suburban tours from town. After visiting Arareko and its diminutive mission church, visitors soldier on to see weirdly weathered boulders in the surrounding valleys, which the local people have named according to their shapes. Visit the Valley of Breasts (Valle de Chichis), Frog Valley (Valle de Ranas), or Mushroom Valley (Valle de Ongos). Monolithic spires in yet another enclave constitute the Valley of Erect Penises; tourism folk have decided to call it the Valley of Nuns. the mission church at Cusárare, built in 1741 * What and where to eat Creel is fuel of traditional cusine.
