Arizona State University’s Center for Digital Antiquity, in collaboration with the Amerind Museum, was supported by a 2017 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to create a comprehensive digital library of reports on archaeological investigations of the ancient Huhugam (Hohokam – 1500 B.C. – 1450 A.D.). These central and southern Arizona inhabitants once tamed the Sonoran desert using sophisticated irrigation, far-flung networks of ceremonial ball courts, specialized craft production, extensive trade, and large, long-lived towns. The Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology contains copies of over 1,200 major archaeological reports totaling roughly 200,000 pages.  It is accessible through Digital Antiquity’s tDAR repository (the Digital Archaeological Record).  tDAR is an established online repository that preserves and provides access to international 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, valued resource to learn about this fascinating ancient culture.
