The Hohokam, Sinagua and the Hakataya

Author(s): Albert H. Schroeder

Year: 1960


The Museum of Northern Arizona has spent a number of years sponsoring archaeological investigations which have led to defining the Sinagua culture in the neighborhood of the San Francisco Mountain area of northern Arizona. The Gila Pueblo Archaeological Foundation has devoted considerable research to the definition of the Hohokam in southern Arizona. Dr. Colton, in his various publications on the Sinagua, also demonstrated that the Hohokam up to about 1125 A.D. and the Sinagua from 1125 to 1400 A.D., inhabited the middle Verde Valley, an area situated between the Gila Basin of southern Arizona and the San Francisco Mountains of northern Arizona. Excavations by the Museum also demonstrated that a colony of Hohokam had settled in the San Francisco Mountain area around 1070 A.D., apparently having moved north form the Verde Valley.

The Archives of Archaeology Series is a 29-volume set jointly published by the University of Wisconsin Press and the Society for American Archaeology on opaque microcards, a now obsolete format. The Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center at the University of Wisconsin—La Crosse has digitized the original opaque microcards and made the digital copies available through tDAR. More information on the process of digitizing the series can be found in Joseph Tiffany’s 2012 article entitled "Digitizing the Archives of Archaeology Series" in the SAA Archaeological Record (
