Death, Society and Ideology in a Hohokam Community: Colonial and Sedentary Period Burials from La Ciudad

Summary

The nature of Hohokam social organization has always been at the core of debates surrounding the prehistory of southern Arizona. Changing theoretical perspectives have shifted the directions and foci of controversy but the differences in these orientations can largely be described in terms of the assumptions made about social organization. A continuing thread to the arguments has been disagreement over the nature of power relationships in Hohokam society and the importance of such relationships to our understanding of prehistory.
