Dogs in the Southwest
Archaeology Southwest Magazine Vol. 22, No. 3
Issue editors: Tobi Taylor, Archaeology Southwest (formerly the Center for Desert Archaeology), Alan Ferg, Arizona State Museum, and Dody Fugate, Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
This special theme issue of Archaeology Southwest Magazine explores some of the roles that dogs have played in the Southwest, from prehistory to the present.
Contributors discuss archaeological evidence of dogs; the changing roles and uses of dogs among various groups; their place in traditional stories; material culture made from dog bones and dog hair; depictions of dogs in Ancestral Pueblo, Mimbres, and Hohokam material culture as well as Southwestern and Yoeme art; their use as weapons against Native Americans by the Spaniards; and the ways in which dogs contribute to our sense of place.
