Summary

The mortuary record of the Flagstaff region is best known

for the burial of the Magician, who was accompanied by

several discrete sets of ritual paraphernalia representing

different ritual and political roles. The present project will

compile a mortuary database for the Flagstaff region in

conjunction with the creation of other regional databases

using standardized variable states. These efforts will

allow a greater contextual understanding of the Magician

within his local community, as well as with other regions,

especially the foundational ritual practices of the Chaco

region and the later practices of diasporic communities

below the Mogollon Rim.
