Archaeology Southwest (Tucson, AZ 85701-1107)
Aaron Wright (Project Director: May 2020 to October 2021)
Indigenous Petroglyphs as Social Networks

Retention of one part-time staff position and creation of four full-time positions for a six-month research project to collect and analyze petroglyphs through a social network framework.

The Indigenous Petroglyphs as Social Networks (IPSN) project will enlist Native American tribal members to develop and facilitate the ingestion of a large volume of petroglyph data into cyberSW 2.0, a centralized online archaeological data synthesis and knowledge discovery system for use by the general public, tribal communities, and scholars. As a data compilation, synthesis, compatibility, and conversion project, IPSN will enable the network analysis of petroglyphs across the American Southwest via cyberSW’s Neo4J graph database to address questions about social identity, territoriality, and religious expression at scales never before possible and with a resolution never before attempted. In light of the current public health crisis, four Data Specialists from the Fort Yuma Quechan Indian Tribe and a project director will work exclusively from their homes to carry out the project’s activities.
