Archaeological evidence from the Archaic, Basketmaker, Pueblo, Protohistoric, and Historic occupation periods all attest to collisions and coalescences of varying cultures here as a product of its being the hinterlands of so many social groups. This trend continues right up to the present day and has intriguing implications for the future of the area.
