Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology (DAHA)

The Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology will contain digital copies of 1600 major archaeological reports—with 400,000 pages—on the Huhugam (Hohokam) culture of Arizona, known for its enormous irrigation systems and large, sustainable towns. Coupled with new methods of text analysis, this comprehensive archive will transform scholars’ ability to answer questions about Huhugam society and will provide crucial long-term data for comparative studies. It will give Indigenous communities access to a wealth of archaeological research on ancestral populations. The general public will obtain information about this fascinating ancient culture by directly accessing the digital archive. Archive development is guided by a crowd-sourced survey and workshops designed to understand the needs of diverse users. The archive will be curated by tDAR, an established digital repository that provides free Web discovery and access to its holdings and pursues a robust program of digital data preservation.

The one culture appeared so unlike the other that it seemed impossible to account for the sudden change in lifestyles. Then, in the 1980s, the first clues were found to bridge the gap...

  • Archaeology of the Pueblo Grande Platform Mound and Surrounding Features Volume 1 Introduction to the Archival Project and History of Archaeological Research (1993)
    DOCUMENT Full-Text Uploaded by: Joshua Watts

    Pueblo Grande is a special place. The subject of legend both ancient and modern, it is one of the most impressive and familiar of all surviving Hohokam sites. Until recently, any visitor could plainly see from exposed rooms, deteriorating walls, and eroding test holes and tunnels that Pueblo Grande had been extensively excavated. It would have been logical to assume from this evidence that the site was one of the most famous and best documented of all Classic period Hohokam villages. Until the...

    More than 1000 years ago, a people that archaeologists call the Hohokam first inhabited the deserts of what is now Arizona. They flourished for more than 70 generations in the lower Salt River Valley, the place where Phoenix now stands. Buried beneath the modern metropolis are the ruins of many aboriginal villages and a vast and elaborate irrigation network that may have watered 40,000 acres of cropland. (Jerry Howard completed this map, Figure 1, of the Hohokam irrigation canals and major...

    The nature of Hohokam social organization has always been at the core of debates surrounding the prehistory of southern Arizona. Changing theoretical perspectives have shifted the directions and foci of controversy but the differences in these orientations can largely be described in terms of the assumptions made about social organization. A continuing thread to the arguments has been disagreement over the nature of power relationships in Hohokam society and the importance of such relationships...

    La Ciudad Phoenix was one of numerous Hohokam Indian villages that once were located about every three miles (4.8 kilometers) along extensive irrigation canals in the Salt and Gila river valleys. First founded in the early centuries A.D., La Ciudad endured for a millennium or more, evolving new forms of organization to meet life’s challenges on several scales of interaction, only to fail in the end when the Hohokam abandoned the Phoenix basin about A.D. 1450. The more archaeologists learn about...

    DOCUMENT Full-Text David Jacobs. Glen E. Rice.

    In 1850, the Phoenix Basin had been uninhabited for about 350 to 400 years. It was visited occasionally by hunting, fishing, or gathering parties from the Pima, Pee Posh, Yavapai or Apache, but the last people to have cleared farming fields, excavated canals, and built villages in the lower Salt River valley had been the Hohokam, and they had abandoned the area sometime between A.D. 1450 and 1500. This timeline is important to archaeologists because it means that the desert vegetation in the...

    The last decade has seen a quantum leap in our understanding of the Hohokam. From those first days of defining the Hohokam as a cultural entity, great strides have been taken in describing their subsistence and settlement systems, explicating core-periphery relationships, and modeling the processes of Hohokam development, expansion, and decline. And yet, the old adage “the faster we go, the further behind we get” seems particularly descriptive of the current state of Hohokam archaeology. While...
