Land Use and Site Formation Processes of a Genizaro Land Grant: Recent Excavations at the Pueblo de Abiquiu, NM
Author(s): Alexandra McCleary
This paper will discuss the most recent excavations in the Genizaro Pueblo de Abiquiu, NM (est. 1754). Abiquiu, as one of the oldest and most successful Genizaro land grants, is a key area for better understanding the history and trajectory of Indo-Hispanic settlements in Northern New Mexico. Three distinct areas within the historical boundary of the land grant were excavated, representing domestic defensive, and agricultural contexts. The paper will go over the excavations, ground-truthing GPR results, and highlight the the ongoing collaborative process that has made this excavation a success.
