Summary

Previous researchers have proposed that early red ware traditions in Southeast Utah (i.e., Abajo Red-on-orange) represent an intrusive practice in an area generally dominated by black-on-white ceramics. This red ware "intrusion" has previously been interpreted as possibly representing the in-migration of southern groups into Southeast Utah and Southwestern Colorado. Using the communities of practice approach, this paper characterizes pit structure architectural practice in relation to technological style in the Northern San Juan region during the Basketmaker and early Pueblo periods to explore migration and social identity among early Pueblo residents of Southeast Utah and Southwestern Colorado.
