ABSTRACT
Discusses debates surrounding the exact locations where the Hohokam tribe originated, among Southwestern archaeologists. Description of Rooney Ranch in Tucson, Arizona where the tribe settled several centuries after the birth of Christ; Theory that the Hohokam have migrated from Meso-american into the Phoenix Basin; Belief that the tribe have colonized much of the rest of the desert of southern Arizona; Changes in the theories being formulated by Hohokam archaeologists and the growing belief that the colonization represents not a movement of people so much as a movement of ideas.
