Summary

LA-ICP-MS is used to examine glaze-paint pigmenting strategies during the Pueblo IV period in the Upper Little Colorado and Western Zuni Regions of the American Southwest. These data are integrated with INAA sourcing information and compared to glaze-paint strategies from other areas of the late precontact Southwest to define cross-cutting technological communities of practice and to trace the circulation of ideas, production techniques, raw materials and finished objects through networks of social interaction and shared practices at village, intraregional and interregional scales. These results contribute to the increasingly macroregional exploration of how social networks facilitated the exchange of technical information, fostered migration, and served as arenas of social reproduction that transformed late precontact period social groups in the American Southwest.
