Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology (Database/Archive/Digital Edition)
Title: Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology
Author: Center for Digital Antiquity
Abstract: The Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology contains over 1,200 digital datasets, documents, reports and images focused on the ancient Huhugam (1500 B.C. – 1450 A.D.) of the southwestern U.S. These files are primarily “grey literature,” that is, unpublished reports and data sets that would otherwise be difficult to obtain. By creating this collection, we hope this comprehensive archive will: Transform scholars’ ability to answer questions about Huhugam society and will provide crucial long-term data for comparative studies. 1. Give Indigenous communities access to a wealth of archaeological research on ancestral populations. 2. Allow the general public to obtain information about this fascinating ancient culture by directly accessing the digital archive. Archive development is guided by a crowd-sourced survey and workshops designed to understand the needs of diverse users. The archive will be curated by tDAR, an established digital repository that provides free Web discovery and access to its holdings and pursues a robust program of digital data preservation.

Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology (DAHA): White Paper (Report)
Title: Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology (DAHA): White Paper
Author: Christopher Nicholson
Author: Center for Digital Antiquity
Author: Keith Kintigh
Abstract: The Center for Digital Antiquity at Arizona State University, in collaboration with the Amerind Museum, utilized a 2017 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to create a comprehensive digital library of archaeological investigations of the ancient Huhugam (Hohokam). The Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology (DAHA) now contains copies of more than 2,000 major archaeological reports, images and data sets. It is curated and made accessible through tDAR (the Digital Archaeological Record), an established online repository that preserves and provides access to archaeological data. The DAHA collection provides scholars with crucial long-term data for comparative studies, indigenous communities with access to a wealth of research on ancestral populations, and the general public with a reliable, vetted resource focused on Huhugam culture (1500 B.C. – 1450 A.D.). This white paper was submitted as a deliverable to the National Endowment for the Humanities.
