Hopi Dwellings: Architectural Change at Orayvi
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungCatherine Cameron examines architectural change at Orayvi from 1871 to 1948 a period of great demographic and social upheaval. Her study is unique in its use of historic photographs to document and understand abandonment processes and apply that knowledge to prehistoric sites. Photos taken by tourists, missionaries, and early anthropologists during the late nineteenth century portray original structures, while later photos show how Orayvi buildings changed over a period of almost eighty years. Census data relating to house size and household configuration shed additional light on social change in the pueblo.Examining change at Orayvi afforded an opportunity to study the architectural effects of an event that must have happened many times in the past -- the partial abandonment of a pueblo -- by tracing the effects of sudden population decline on puebloan architecture. Cameron's work provides clues to how and why villages were abandoned and re-established repeatedly in the prehistoric Southwest as it offers a unique window on the relationship between Pueblo houses and the living people who occupied them.
PortraitCatherine M. Cameron is Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Colorado-Boulder and co-editor with Steve A. Tomka of "The Abandonment of Settlements and Regions: Ethnoarchaeological and Archaeological Approaches."
