They were farmers as well as hunters. There were over 2,000 sites left behind at the Grand Canyon that have been studied to date. It is thought that the people came to the North Rim to farm and then returned back down into the canyon for the winter. (Submitted on December 29, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
