Agave Roasting Pits of the Mescalero Apache (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Holly Houghten.

This is an abstract from the "Hot Rocks in Hot Places: Investigating the 10,000-Year Record of Plant Baking across the US-Mexico Borderlands" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. One of the main staple foods of the Mescalero Apache was Mescal or Agave. The heart of the plant is cooked in an earth oven for four days. The plant is then eaten straight out of the oven or dried for storage and supply. Today the roasting of Mescal is still done every year in...

Aztec West Ruin: Perishables and Pottery from Various National Park Service Projects and Collections
PROJECT Uploaded by: Lori Reed

This project includes images of perishable artifacts (textiles, basketry, etc.) and pottery recovered from Aztec Ruins during the course of numerous National Park Service (NPS) projects.

DOCUMENT Full-Text David Eckles. Timothy R. Nowak.

The EKW #1 site (48NA969) was located during a class III survey of the Edness Kimball Wilkins State Park in 1984 (Eckles 1984). The site appeared as a large surface scatter of artifacts and bone, covering over five acres. The site was considered unusual at the time due to the high numbers of prehistoric ceramic artifacts. Late Prehistoric age projectile points, a variety of chipped stone tools, shell beads and animal bone were also recorded during the surface inventory. The density of surface...

Embracing the Ndee Past as the Present: Ndee Cultural Tenets as Practice (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nicholas Laluk.

In 2004 the White Mountain Apache Tribe approved the Cultural Heritage Resources Best Management Practices (Welch et al.). However, since the tribe’s adoption of the practices little has been done in reference to the application of such tenets/concepts found within the guidelines. Tribal programs, contractors, and researcher’s might adhere to the guidelines during project activities but only as "guidelines," when there is much more embedded in such tenets as respect and avoidance that can be...

In 2014, as part of its effort to improve tDAR content, the Center for Digital Antiquity uploaded a copy of the document and further improved the record metadata.

On the Road to Becoming Apache: The Western Dismal River Culture at the Plains/Foothills Margin (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Sean P. Larmore. Kevin P. Gilmore.

Discovery of new sites as well as the reanalysis of museum collections over the last 15 years has renewed focus on the Western Dismal River (WDR) culture, which we hypothesize represents the ancestral Apachean occupation of the western margin of the Great Plains and into the foothills and high country of the Rocky Mountains, A.D. 1300-1650. Once thought to represent the initial entry of ancestral Apache in the region during the initial Na-Dene diaspora from the north, this culture is now...

Promontory Culture in Eastern Colorado: Franktown Cave and Early Proto-Apachean Migration (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kevin P. Gilmore. Derek Hamilton. John W. Ives.

Similarities between contemporaneous occupations from the Promontory Caves in Utah and Franktown Cave in eastern Colorado provide evidence of a pre-A.D. 1300 migration of proto-Apachean speakers into the Rocky Mountain west using both Intermontane and Plains margin migration routes. Bayesian modeling of Promontory Culture AMS dates from Franktown Cave suggests a 40-85 year occupation starting in the early A.D. 13th century that likely overlaps the modeled 25-55 year occupation of Promontory Cave...

Searching for Cochise: The 2015 Archaeological Survey for an Apache Campsite associated with the Bascom Affair (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nicholas Laluk. Larry Ludwig. Dan McGrew. Chris Adams.

In the winter of 1861 an event took place between the U.S. military and the Chokonen band of Chiricahua Apache under the leadership of Cochise that intensified Apache-U.S. military hostilities for another 10 years. This paper presents the initial pedestrian and metal detector survey results from the Bascom Affair project. Archaeologists utilizing metal detector surveys at military sites have met with great success (e.g., Adams 2000a, 2000b, 2001; Laumbach et al. 2001; Ludwig and Stute 1993;...
