Paper Title: TECHNOLOGICAL TRADITIONS AND ETHNIC CO-RESIDENCE: A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF ETHNOARCHAEOLOGICAL AND ARCHAEOLOGICAL CORRUGATED COOKING POTS

Abstract: A common premise of archaeological pottery studies is that technological style is learned during early enculturation, likely to remain static throughout the lifetime of a potter, and maintained when potters migrate to new places, allowing archaeologists to reconstruct migrations and detect the formation of multi-ethnic settlements. We report ethnoarchaeological data from multi-ethnic villages in the Ecuadorian Amazon where adults re-learn pottery-making techniques, especially when they move to new communities, and we analyze technological attributes of corrugated pots to examine historical trajectories. These data are then compared to an archaeological case of proposed multi-ethnic settlement in west-central New Mexico.
