Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology (DAHA) 2022 SAA Poster

Author(s): Rachel Fernandez; Charlene Collazzi

Year: 2022


The Center for Digital Antiquity at Arizona State University, in collaboration with the Amerind Museum, utilized a 2017 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to create a comprehensive digital library of archaeological investigations of the ancient Huhugam (Hohokam). The Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology (DAHA) now contains copies of more than 2,000 major archaeological reports, images and data sets made accessible through tDAR (the Digital Archaeological Record), an established online repository that preserves and provides access to archaeological data. The DAHA collection provides scholars with crucial long-term data for comparative studies, indigenous communities with access to a wealth of research on ancestral populations, and the general public with a reliable, vetted resource focused on Huhugam culture (1500 B.C. – 1450 A.D.). In this poster we hope to illustrate how this project came to be and current outcomes, along with potential improvements for future projects.

Copy of the poster "Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology" presented during the Digital Archaeology Across North America poster session. The poster gives an overview of the project and analyzes the usage of the DAHA collection after 1 year of being active in tDAR. Data for the poster can be found at:
