EMAP (2001) Mimbres Ritual on the Ladder Ranch

Part of the EMAP - Reports project

Author(s): Michelle Hegmon; Margaret C. Nelson

Year: 2001

Summary

Rituals were essential in the lives of the people of the Mimbres. What symbols had meaning in their ritual? How was ceremony structured? Little is known about these aspects of the past because so many prehistoric villages have been destroyed by looters. But Mimbres villages on the Ladder Ranch, in the eastern Mimbres area, have been protected from looters and we have been fortunate in finding many clues to the rituals and ceremonial practices of the people of the Mimbres.
