<!--[if gte mso 9]> Normal 0 oNotOptimizeForBrowser/> Greetings Archeology Buffs:

Many years ago, as my wife and I were driving south from Albuquerque, I pulled off the road near the ancient Pueblo village of Las Humanas, part of the original Gran Quivira National Monument of New Mexico.  After a few moments of inspection outside of the tourist zone, which I visited later, I discovered fragments of pottery (potsherds) in the ruined outline of a pueblo.  (I wish your forum would have let me post them.)  At the time, I knew what I had found, but I had not identified the pottery type and this perimeter site.  This area is now the Salinas Pueblo Missions National, which includes the Gran Quivira, Quarai, and Abo pueblo ruins that existed as Pueblo communities between A.D. 1000 and 1670 until roving bands of Apache caused the abandonment of both the Pueblo villages and Mission San Isidro (built in 1629).  The collection below represents Tiwa-speaking Indian pottery design, dating from A.D. 1000 to 1300.  Later Las Humanas pottery designs of the seventeenth century reflect Spanish influence.  

          Inspired by my discovery, my wife and I visited the San Ildefonso Pueblo near Albuquerque and later visited the ruins near the 17th century San José de los Jemez Mission Church in Jemez Springs, the Pueblo Bonito ruins in Chaco Canyon, and, after visiting the kivas in Aztec, NM, explored the cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde.  On the way home, we also visited the Pueblo ruins in Wupatki and Walnut Canyon National Monuments, but the most magnificent example of Pueblo ingenuity we’ve explored so far was Canyon de Chelly in northeastern Arizona.  From this point in time, I began my life-long interest in Southwestern Native pottery, basketry, weaving, and Kachinas.  I have, as a result of my inquisitiveness, developed a great respect for the culural heritage of Native American peoples, ultimately devoting my anthropological thesis to this group (the Economic Basis of Indian Migration and Adjustment to the City).  I’ve also collected Naval instruments and other collectibles from Morocco and Mexico, as well as a large sampling of fossils throughout the United States and Morocco, but my Southwestern Native arts, crafts, and artifacts are the most important groups in my collections, the centerpiece being a sand painting by Navajo artist James C. Box (“Whirling Log, The Yei-Bi-Chai Hunt”).
