U. of Arizona Press


316 pages




An independent researcher and educator, Ferguson (U. of Arizona) specializes in applied anthropological research concerning Native Americans; Colwell-Chanthaphonh is an independent archaeologist who has published numerous articles in scholarly journals. In this text, they report findings from the San Pedro Ethnohistory Project, a collaborative research endeavor undertaken by a team of four Native American tribes--Tohono O'odham, Hopi, Zuni, and San Carlos Apache--and researchers to record tribal traditions relating to Arizona's San Pedro Valley and integrate them with ethnohistory and archaeological information. The themes discussed include migration, warfare, social identity, subsistence ecology, and population dynamics--all within the framework of how land is perceived by individuals given their particular values and beliefs. For Native Americans, archaeologists, anthropologists, historians, and interested general readers.
