AZ Speaks: The Earliest Apache in Arizona: Evidence and Arguments

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Event Details

How did the Apache impact late prehistoric peoples? Research provides evidence of ancestral Apaches in the southern Southwest as early as A.D. 1300. Evidence comes from chronometric dates obtained from storage features (covered with grass or leaves), on Apache pottery, and from roasting pits, all in direct association with other types of Apache material culture. A continuous sequence of use from the A.D. 1300s through the late 1700s provides new insights into a western route into this region and the presence of the earliest ancestral Apache three centuries earlier than previously thought, even in areas where Coronado did not see them.  Provided by funding from the AZ Humanities and the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library
