An Archaeology of Survivance: Investigating Settler Colonial Narratives with the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community of Oregon (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Sara L Gonzalez.

Native nations in the 19th and early 20th century were subjected to increasing pressure from American settlers and the U.S. government, which resulted in their forced removal, resettlement, and the creation of policies that were directed at terminating tribal identities and reservations. Despite this history of colonial oppression and dispossession tribes such as the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon (CTGR) did not just survive settler colonialism, but created anew their social worlds and sense of...


Enslavement to Enlistment: the US Military in 19th Century African American Migration and Resettlement (2020)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Katherine Hayes. Sophie Minor.

This is an abstract from the session entitled "Bridging Connections and Communities: 19th-Century Black Settlement in North America" , at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. As has been recently pointed out, the role of the military in African diaspora studies has been little considered, especially as a vector of migration and resettlement. The site of Fort Snelling in Minnesota offers numerous examples of how such migration was facilitated in the 19th century,...


Hedged Bets and Serious Games: Native Responses to Settler Colonialism and Indian Removal in the 19th-Century Middle West (2020)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Addison P. Kimmel.

This is an abstract from the session entitled "Considering Frontiers Beyond the Romantic: Spaces of Encroachment, Innovation, and Far Reaching Entanglements" , at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. Until their settlement was burned by the Illinois militia in 1832, Native people—mostly Ho-Chunks—made their homes in a village along the Rock River in Northern Illinois. This settlement’s inhabitants were well aware of the threats posed by settler colonial...


Indigenous Histories and the Queer Future of Archaeological Anachronism (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jamie Arjona.

Archaeological representations of modernity can inadvertently bind Indigenous history to a political past. Native origin myths, archaeological exhibits, and racist mascots cement the prior-ness of Indigenous communities. In order to challenge settlement in the present, Indigenous bodies must disrupt a settler state that fossilizes Native sovereignty. The case studies presented in this article consider moments when haunting intimacies with Indigenous presences queered the tense of settlement....


The Politics of Pots: Becoming New Communities in the Historic Northern Rio Grande (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Valerie Bondura.

In contemporary New Mexico, the tripartite division of presumed "Anglo", "Indian", and "Hispano" ethnic communities is naturalized in scholarship and in everyday life, but projecting this division into the past elides diverse historical realities. Pueblo, Apache, and vecino notions of community and landscape stand in contrast to the American imaginaries that underpin some historical anthropology and archaeology in the Southwest. This paper considers the archaeological interpretation of...


Settling a Waste-land: Mapping Historic Can Scatters in the Western Mojave Desert (2020)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Alaina L. Wibberly.

This is an abstract from the session entitled "California: Post-1850s Consumption and Use Patterns in Negotiated Spaces" , at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. In the eyes of Anglo-American settlers, the Mojave served as a transportation corridor between habitable areas rather than a site of potential habitability itself. This paper uses GIS-based analysis of historic can scatters in the Mojave to investigate the relationship settlers held with the land they...
