  • Richard Allen Pailes: In Memoriam

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Those of us who have spent time with Dick (aka Rich) Pailes at Bahía de Kino, or Punta Chueca, Sonora, México, were privileged to experience a very special side of this man that was exhibited nowhere else. Being at the interface of two very different environments—the ocean and the desert—he exuded an aura of contentment that bordered on spiritual. Dick was, of course, happy in Norman, Oklahoma, with family, friends, colleagues, and students. And, he was happy while conducting field work. But on the Sonoran coast, he was special. He was in his proverbial element. He was in the two disparate worlds that he loved, one exclusively of water, the other devoid of it. Here, he wasn’t at home. He was home.Dick’s early home ...

  • Tlaloc and a Mesoamerican Cosmology in the American Southwest

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It has long been recognized in the American Southwest that maize agriculture, beginning at least 4,000 years ago, had its origins in Mexico. At the same time, the more complex and intangible aspects of Mesoamerican/Southwest connections such as cosmology are viewed as elusive and are less well understood and therefore hotly debated. Cosmology may be broadly defined as a given view of the world and humanity held by a society. Such systems of belief are fundamental to religions and their associated rituals that, in turn, leave evidence in the archaeological record.Recently there has been renewed discussion concerning the various aspects of religion and cosmology in the American Southwest that were derived from ...

  • Prelude to the Columbus Raid of 1916: The Battle of Naco

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When “constitutionalist” revolutionaries ousted the Mexican dictator Victoriano Huerta in July 1914, the political situation in Mexico was far from stable. The rivalry between the victorious Mexican rebel commanders Pancho Villa and Venustiano Carranza coincided with the outbreak of World War I. Because of its oil wealth and proximity to the United States, Mexico became a strategic interest in the war. German agents, most notably Felix A. Sommerfeld, Dr. Arnold Krumm-Heller, and Frederico Stallforth, infiltrated the inner circles of the Villa and Carranza factions, as well as the large community of exiled Mexican leaders.1 In the fall and winter of 1914, the imperial German government had not yet decided upon a ...

  • Place Naming and Toponymic Silencing in the Sierras of Northern Nuevo
           México

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This essay is an exercise in critical toponymy applied to the Pecos Wilderness and surrounding mountainous areas of northern Nuevo México.1 It is part of a larger research project called the Manito Topos Project, which aims to challenge the erasure of traditional Indohispano Nuevomexicano place names. I use the term Indohispano to emphasize the hybrid, nativized nature of Nuevomexicano culture (cf. Lamadrid & Gandert 2003). I also adopt the term Manito, which has evolved as an ethnic identifier for Nuevomexicanos in the north of the state and in parts of southern Colorado (cf. Bills & Vigil 2008, ch. 2). The project stems from the observation that many official place names across Nuevo México are anglicized ... Read More
