History and Description of the Remains At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from an unknown location in Arizona. In 1975, the human remains and associated funerary object were donated to the Herrett Center for Arts and Science, College of Southern Idaho, by the family of James H. Berkley. No known individuals were identified. The one associated funerary object is a ceramic cremation vessel with a lid. The human remains are a cremation, which together with the ceramic cremation vessel, is associated with the Sedentary Period of the Sacaton Phase, dating from A.D. 900–1100. The evidence provided by this burial practice, the associated funerary object, and the geographical provenience of the human remains and associated funerary object supports a cultural affiliation to the Hohokam culture. Cultural continuity between the prehistoric occupants of the region and present-day O’odham and Puebloan peoples is supported by continuities in settlement patterns, architectural technologies, basketry, textiles, ceramic technology, ritual practices, and oral traditions. Documentation submitted by representatives of the Gila River Indian Community of the Gila River Indian Reservation, Arizona establishes cultural continuities between the ancient Hohokam and present-day O’odham tribes.
