Archaeology Southwest Magazine Vol. 32, No. 4

Issue Editors: William H. Doelle and J. Homer Thiel

This issue explores communities in the Tucson Basin across some 4,000 years. The region is part of the traditional territory of the O’odham people, who have been here since time immemorial. The Spanish place name Tucson is in fact derived from the O’odham S-cuk Son, “at the base of the black hill,” also known today as Sentinel Peak—Tucson’s birthplace. Ancestors of today’s O’odham people ranged, settled, and farmed this land, from the deep past into the historic era.

Tucson presents us all with an opportunity to understand this place in light of that deep heritage, reflected in archaeological sites, ancient fields, well-trodden trains, surrounding rock art, and the rich histories and traditions of O’odham people. More recent centuries are also attested by the material records of missionaries, European colonists, families of Mexican descent, and Euro-American settlers.

The Village of S-cuk Son and Mission San Agustín, J. Homer Thiel

Archaeologist James Vint provided the following comments on Kino’s 1696-1697 map reproduced on page 31 in this issue:

“It is reproduced in:
Burrus, Ernest J., S. J.
1965 Kino and the Cartography of Northwestern New Spain. Arizona Pioneers’ Historical Society, Tucson.

“The caption is:
‘Plate IX Kino’s original 1696-1697 map, likewise drawn to illustrate the biography of his martyred Jesuit missionary companion, Father Saeta. The cartographical reproduction, preserved in the Central Jesuit Archives, was unknown until modern times.’

“Regarding the location being the “‘Central Jesuit Archives,’ I think Burrus did in fact find the map and other relevant documents in the archives at the Jesuit Curia in Rome (rather than one of the parochial archives here in in the States).”
