Many alcoves also hold springs, lush with plants. Today on Land Lines, we visit a well-known site, Betatakin--set like a jewel in one of those alcoves.&nbsp;</p><p>&quot;The name for this place is Talastima, place of flowers, or corn tasseling.&nbsp; This is where we came from,&quot;&nbsp;says&nbsp;Lloyd&nbsp;Masayumptewa, a Hopi&nbsp;and&nbsp;a&nbsp;park archeologist.</p> Thu, 19 Apr 2012 11:00:00 +0000 Rose Houk & Michael Collier 12432 at http://knau.org Land Lines: Betatakin
