Structure and Organization at La Ciudad

Summary

The last decade has seen a quantum leap in our understanding of the Hohokam. From those first days of defining the Hohokam as a cultural entity, great strides have been taken in describing their subsistence and settlement systems, explicating core-periphery relationships, and modeling the processes of Hohokam development, expansion, and decline. And yet, the old adage “the faster we go, the further behind we get” seems particularly descriptive of the current state of Hohokam archaeology. While explanatory scenarios and interpretive models proliferate, a major disjunction is evident between our attempts to explain and understand the Hohokam and the adequacy of the data base on which these explanations are constructed (Dean and Crown 1983:860; McGuire 1982).
