Résumé
Numerous southwestern cultures have long histories of occupation centered around providing adequate water resources for themselves while coping with difficult environmental conditions in semiarid environments – the Jornada Mogollon at Cottonwood Spring Pueblo were no exception. Water use and management technology strategies are poorly understood and seldom investigated in depth within the Jornada del Muerto and the west central Jornada Mogollon region. Cottonwood Spring Pueblo, LA175, is a large multicomponent site spread over a one-and-one-quarter mile linear area. To date, exactly how Cottonwood Pueblo residents diverted and managed their water resources is unknown and uninvestigated. The only obvious prehistoric source of water near Cottonwood Pueblo is a now silted-in spring found in the arroyo immediately east of the site. This thesis reviews the many similarities of agricultural and water management use in the American Southwest and considers, in particular, how water was managed for agriculture and domestic purposes at Cottonwood Spring Pueblo.
