Archaeology of Colonialism and the lineages of Tupiniquim women in São Vicente & Rio de Janeiro during the 16-17th century: by an interdisciplinary approach (2023)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Marianne Sallum. Francisco Noelli. Sílvia Peixoto. Ane Elisabeth Modesti Simões.

This is an abstract from the session entitled "Pre-Recorded Video Presentation Paper / Report Submission (General Sessions)", at the 2023 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. This work proposes a different method, one in which historical, genealogical, and archaeological data are analyzed and interpreted through other hermeneutics and semantics in order to find lineages of women who had their names recorded. On the basis of two archaeological sites in Rio de Janeiro -...

Creative Continuity:Tradition and Community Reproduction on the Margins of Western Ireland (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ryan Lash.

Local pilgrimage or an turas traditions in western Ireland provide a valuable opportunity to critique and nuance the common association of geographically marginal communities with cultural stasis. Emerging archaeological evidence suggests that modern pilgrims not only re-used older monuments, but also reproduced certain patterns of movement and memory initially developed for monastic liturgies in the early medieval period (c. 400-1100 CE). Such apparent long-term continuities of practice evoke...

Embodying Survivance: Western Apache Production Practices in the Reservation Era (2020)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Mairead Doery.

This is an abstract from the session entitled "Beyond Ornamentation: New Approaches to Adornment and Colonialism" , at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. Archaeological narratives of settler colonialism often characterize Indigenous survival strategies dualistically, encompassing either active rebellion against or total acquiescence to colonial power. Consequently, amendments to the production and design of traditional clothing and jewelry items are interpreted...

Moving Masca: Persistent Indigenous Communities in Spanish Colonial Honduras (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Russell N Sheptak.

In 1714, Candelaria, a pueblo de indios (indigenous town) in Spanish colonial Honduras, concluded a decades-long legal fight to protect community land from encroachment. Documents in the case describe the movement of the town, originally called Masca, from a site on the Caribbean coast, where it was located in 1536, to a series of inland locations. Many other pueblos de indios in the area moved to new locations in the late 1600s or early 1700s. The mobility of these towns, their incorporation...

Persistence in the Nochixtlán Valley during the Classic to Postclassic Transition: Preliminary Notes from Etlatongo (2023)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Cuauhtémoc Vidal Guzmán.

This is an abstract from the "Checking the Pulse: Current Research in Oaxaca Part I" session, at the 88th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. As in many other parts of Mesoamerica, the transition from the Classic to Postclassic periods in the Nochixtlán valley is a debated topic given the paucity of research in the Ñuu Savi area. Recently, archaeologists have aimed to elucidate the social transformations that took place during this liminal time by conducting excavations at...

The Theodore Roosevelt Boarding School: Ndee (Apache) Cultural Persistence and Survivance (2023)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nicholas C Laluk. Michael C Spears. Benrita Burnette. Maren P Hopkins.

This is an abstract from the session entitled "Boarding And Residential Schools: Healing, Survivance And Indigenous Persistence", at the 2023 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. Indigenous boarding school experiences in North America are dynamic and diverse, ranging from traumatic and isolating to adventurous and amplifying. Recent partnerships and collaborations between Indigenous communities and researchers are providing new insights into the complex histories of...
