Abstract: Point of Pines Pueblo, located in the mountains of central Arizona, is an 800 room pueblo occupied from 1265-1400 AD occupied by people ancestral to modern day Zuñi peoples. For 35 years of its occupation (1265-1300) an enclave of people from the Kayenta region to the north (ancestral to modern day Hopi) were present at the site. The nature of the relationship between these two groups, before, during and after the presents of the enclave at the site is the topic of the talk.
