The Homol’ovi Research Project – The View from ASU


It is unlikely that we will see a research effort of the scope and duration of the Homol’ovi Research Program project replicated in the Southwest. It is the successful execution of this work by Chuck Adams and Rich Lange, unfolding over more than three decades, that we will attempt to contextualize from the vantage point of that other university in Arizona, ASU. We begin by reviewing the intellectual context of Southwestern research preceding the Homol’ovi project, in particular how the aftermath of the "complexity debates" shaped academic research going into the 1990s. A more productive environment for regional scholarship emerged, and a number of research products and approaches emanating from the Homol’ovi work informed research by ASU-associated scholars studying other Pueblo IV-era settlements and settlement clusters. The Homol’ovi program was a key hub in collaborative partnerships among scholars across multiple institutions and contexts (e.g., academic, tribal, governmental) that have enhanced our collective understandings of ancestral Puebloan settlements and the connections these have to contemporary Pueblo peoples.
