Preface


This paper constitutes a report of the work accomplished during the winter of 1939-40 by the second in a series of projects concerned with archaeological investigations on the Papago Indian Reservation. These projects are under the joint supervision of the Arizona State Museum and the Civilian Conservation Corp-Indian Division and have the approval of the U. S. Department of the Interior and the Papago Tribal Council. The excavations were carried on from November 7, 1939 to April 20, 1940, under the direction of Dr. Emil W. Haury and under the field supervision of the writer.

The working force was made up entirely of Papago men and varied from twelve to twenty-three. Juan Harvey was especially helpful in selecting the crew and as an interpreter. I wish also to express my appreciation for the cooperation and assistance given me by the personnel of the shop and the Agency office, especially that of Mr. Minton J. Nolan, head of the Civilian Conservation Corp-Indian Division for the Papago Indian Reservation.

I am indebted to Mr. and Mrs. Alden W. Jones of Sells, Arizona, for courtesies extended to me during the course of the work.

I am sincerely grateful to Dr. Emil W. Haury, head of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona, for his assistance in the preparation of this manuscript.

Dr. W. H. Burt, Curator of Mammals at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, was kind enough to identify the animal bones.
