The Hohokam Native American culture flourished in southern Arizona from the sixth through fifteenth centuries, and the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Tohono O’odham (Papago) occupied this region historically. Ancient Hohokam artifacts, architecture, and other material culture provide archaeologists with clues for identifying where the Hohokam lived, for interpreting how they adapted to the Sonoran Desert for centuries, and explaining why the Hohokam culture mysteriously disappeared. In this presentation archaeologist Allen Dart illustrates the material culture of the Hohokam and presents possible interpretations about their relationships to the natural world, their time reckoning, religious practices, beliefs, and deities, and possible reasons for the eventual demise of their way of life. This program was made possible by Arizona Humanities..
