  • Publishing the Southwest
    • Abstract: It has been at least eight years since we last raised our subscription rates. As our costs for printing and mailing have increased–not to mention compensation for freelance editorial work, production, and paper–we have to respond with a modest increase. With the publication of our spring 2018 issue, we are raising our USA individual annual rate to $40 (previously $25) and for institutions to $100 (from $65). Our foreign subscribers will see an individual rate increase to $75 (from $50) and $125 (from $75) for institutions. Single issues will be for sale for $20 each (previously $15), except for some special issues that might cost more. These increases lie well within the range–indeed frequently at the lower end–of ...

  • Sacred Water and Water-Dwelling Serpents: What Can Yuman Oral Tradition
           Tell Us about Yuman Prehistory'
    • Abstract: This paper brings a multi-disciplinary approach to bear on a consideration of motifs related to water as sacred in Yuman oral tradition, including the association of water with heaven, as well as the great ocean-dwelling serpent of the Delta-California and some River branches of Yuman, and various serpentine guardians of local water resources. As an anthropological linguist involved in documentating the languages and literature of Yuman groups in Baja California, who also teaches various courses in American Indian Studies, an inherently multi-disciplinary field, I draw on evidence from Yuman oral tradition, historical linguistics, rock art iconography, and archaeological work in support of the hypothesis that Yuman ...

  • All the Pretty Language: Cormac McCarthy's All the Pretty Horses as
           Metafictional Künstlerroman
    • Abstract: On the surface, Cormac McCarthy's All the Pretty Horses does not appear to be a complex work. It seems to be a coming-of-age story about a couple of young cowboys, albeit one enlivened by McCarthy's breathtakingly lyrical prose. It is a popular novel, accessible—and, as James Lilley notes, the qualities that give it its mass appeal repel some critics, in particular its depiction of "love at first sight" (275) and the tropes of the more traditional Western (Scott 248).But as Sarah Gleeson-White suggests in her article "Playing Cowboys: Genre, Myth and Cormac McCarthy's All the Pretty Horses," McCarthy is not engaging with the genre unselfconsciously; as she points out, rather than merely perpetuating the stereotypes ...

  • Chaco Rock Art Matters
    • Abstract: In this paper, I make the simple argument that the rock art in Chaco Canyon in northwestern New Mexico needs to be taken into consideration to understand Chaco culture. It is imperative that we pay attention to this ample graphic component of Chaco's past in order to clarify perceptions of Chaco itself, as well as its place and social status in its regional context. Within the wide scope of archaeology in the Americas and elsewhere in the world, ancient images are examined for the insights they provide into the social affiliations, ideologies, cosmologies, and worldviews of the past—cultural dimensions that are often best expressed in the arts, including various graphic media. In the history of southwestern ... Read More

  • Ritual Songs of the Cora of West Mexico and the Hopi of the American
           Southwest: Shared Ideas Related to Maize Agriculture
    • Abstract: This paper presents a comparative study of the shared ideas voiced in ritual song texts created by two Uto-Aztecan-speaking cultural groups who follow a lifeway based on maize. The texts analyzed were collected at the turn of the 20th century among the Cora (Náyari) living in scattered rancherias in the Sierra del Nayar region of northwest Mexico and the Hopi (Hópìit) living in multistoried mesa-top pueblos in northern Arizona in the American Southwest.We focus on songs of the Cora sung by singers who accompany urraca dancers at mitote performances as well as songs of the Hopi sung by katsinas at katsina performances. The urracas and katsinas make their appearance in the communities as masked deities of rain. Our ... Read More

  • The Life and Times of Philipp Anton Segesser, S.J.
    • Abstract: Anyone traveling in Sonora or southern Arizona today will find almost no physical evidence that Jesuits had ever been there other than "remains of ruins" (Bannon 1967: xii). Although their spiritual conquest at the extreme northwest of the viceroyalty of New Spain lasted more than 150 years (Donahue 1969), almost no buildings or even ruins from that era remain (Roca 1967, 1979; Officer, Schuetz-Miller, and Fontana 1996).
