Complex irrigation systems, impressive ball courts, striking pottery, and remarkable jewelry are hallmarks of the Hohokam—the ancient culture that flourished in central and southern Arizona for a thousand years (ca. AD 450-1450). Excavations at the archaeological site known as Snaketown, on Gila River Indian Community lands, under the direction of Emil W. Haury in the 1930s and the 1960s, were fundamental in defining the Hohokam. This exhibit of 13 photographs from ASM’s permanent collections showcases Snaketown’s iconic features, honors the Akimel O’odham crews who unearthed the site, and illustrates the excavation process.

Snaketown: Hohokam Defined is a complement to the traveling exhibit, Pieces of the Puzzle: New Perspectives on the Hohokam, featured at Arizona State Museum now through July 1, 2017.
