Vanishing River Volume 4: Chapter 16: Return to Migration, Population Movement, and Ethnic Identity in the American Southwest

Summary

In Chapter 16, Reid considers the impact that a return to questions about migration, population movement, and ethnic identity has on the interpretation of Arizona’s prehistory. He begins with an intellectual history of migration research in the Southwest, and offers perspective on the strength of making inferences about migration with archaeological data. He uses the arguments for migration at Grasshopper as an example of building such inferences. Reid then advances into a discussion of population mobility in the Southwest. He uses mobility as a theme to consider ethnic identity, ethnic co-residence, and ethnogenesis in the prehistoric American Southwest. Reid concludes with observations on how the LVAP re-oriented its theoretical perspectives to incorporate many of these contemporary research agendas, particularly the notion of cultural landscapes.
