The Hohokam (culturally affiliated with the O’Odham Tribes) were an archaeological tradition who used stone, clay, animal bones and hides, natural vegetation, and agricultural crops in their daily activities for shelter and subsistence. They were also a religious society that likely included priests, healers, and shamans. The roles of different villagers were almost certainly reflected in their material culture. The studies presented in this volume enhance our current understanding of the people who lived at Pueblo Grande.</span></p> <p> <span style="font-size:10.5pt;font-family:"helvetica",sans-serif;color:#1c1e21;background:white;">A team of professional archaeologists volunteered their time to research and write about these collections.
