From Comanches to Aztecs

Anthropology 413

Usual Description

This course explores the changing lifeways of one historically related group, the Uto-Aztecans, who over millennia developed radically different social systems: state-level societies with major urban centers (Aztecs), agriculturalists living in small towns (Hopis) or small dispersed groups (Yaquis), and bands of hunter-gatherers (Comanches). We will examine their major differences at the time of European contact, ways colonialism differently transformed their cultures, and how and where the original population may have originated and dispersed.
