Most were founded during the 14th or 15th centuries and hosted populations into the 17th century. The general trend of these estimates indicates demographic decline throughout the 17th century, both in terms of total population and of occupied villages. Depopulation also triggered an increase in the frequency of extensive surface fires between and Ultimately, this study illustrates the quality of integrated archaeological and paleoecological data needed to assess the links between Native American population decline and ecological change after European contact.

Dating of these occupations is based on tree-ring sequences from architectural wood unearthed in archaeological excavations and the presence of Rio Grande Glaze D ceramics production dates of — This group comprises all villages larger than 10 rooms in the Jemez Province known to date to the latter 15th and early 16th centuries Note, however, that occupations of these sites were not limited solely to this era.

Importantly, we collected the archaeological and tree-ring datasets from spatially contiguous locations, allowing us to simultaneously address both regional population dynamics and forest ecology across the pre- and post-European contact periods. Estimates of terminal inhabitations in the s represent a ificant revision of assessments.

A Locations of sites occupied between and CE. B Aerial photograph of Kwastiyukwa, LA Between andthe Jemez Province emerged as a center of ancestral Puebloan settlement in the northern Rio Grande region 27 During that period, Jemez people constructed more than 30 villages of multistoried stone masonry architecture surrounding enclosed plazas, ranging in size from 50 to more than 1, rooms For this study, we focused exclusively on large village sites to quantify ancestral Jemez populations because ethnohistorical and archaeological studies suggest that field house occupants maintained permanent residences at the large villages Today these large village sites consist of rubble mounds formed from collapsed architecture Fig.

The first direct encounter between the indigenous inhabitants of the Jemez Province and Europeans occurred in Interactions remained sporadic for the next eight decades, even after the establishment of Spanish colonial settlements in New Mexico. The of our population study reveal that the large villages of the Jemez Province could have housed a maximum of 9, persons in the late s to early s.

Based solely on ceramic cross-dating, prior estimates had posited dates of final occupation up to 60 y later 2633 Note that our study investigated population dynamics at large village sites only, however. Accordingly, we can use the date that trees began to regrow on these sites as a proxy for their final inhabitation. Through a study of archaeology and dendrochronology, we conclude that neither of these scenarios accurately characterizes Pueblo peoples in the Southwest United States.

Edited by Patricia L. Debates about the magnitude, tempo, and ecological effects of Native American depopulation after CE constitute some of the most contentious issues in American Indian history.

Among the Jemez pueblos of New Mexico, depopulation struck swiftly and irrevocably, but occurred nearly a century after first contact with Europeans. Population estimates for large villages of the Jemez Province, — To determine the timing of terminal occupations at Jemez villages, we conducted a tree establishment study of remnant wood and old growth trees growing within m of the plaza architecture at these sites Methods. Our tree establishment studies suggest that wide-scale depopulation occurred at Jemez villages between and We measured dates of ponderosa pine establishment at the pueblos of Kiatsukwa, Kwastiyukwa, and Tovakwa and found that tree growth began in the s and s, with additional pulses of tree recruitment occurring in the subsequent three decades Fig.

Based on these tree establishment records, we estimate termini ante quem for the occupation of these villages in the s. Our data derive from the archaeology, dendrochronology, and historical records of the Jemez Province of northern New Mexico between and We devise absolute population estimates for the archaeology of the Jemez Province using airborne light detection and ranging LiDAR data, enabling us to quantify population losses at a regional scale.

To quantify the population of the Jemez Province immediately before European contact, we identified 18 ancestral Jemez villages that were occupied during the period between and Table 2. Our analysis suggests that the terrain surrounding Jemez villages was denuded of trees during periods of human occupation due to demands for wood used in construction, heating, and cooking.

How did this demographic decline affect the environment? According to this theory, demographic collapse spurred the regeneration of forests and sequestration of atmospheric carbon, contributing to global cooling. Although this case study differs from the bulk of post Anthropocene research in terms of forest composition and fire regime contexts, it illustrates the quality of integrated archaeological and paleoecological data needed to assess the Early Anthropocene burning hypothesis at the local level.

Debates about the size of 16th and 17th century populations of the Jemez Province mirror those for North America as a whole. A smattering of historical references present a wide range of population estimates and reported of villages occupied between and Table 1.

Today nearly 2, Jemez tribal members live at the village of Walatowa also known as Jemez Pueblolocated at the southern end of the Jemez Province. These sites are culturally affiliated with Towa-speaking Pueblo peoples living west of the Rio Grande Their descendants constitute the modern Pueblo of Jemez, a federally recognized Indian tribe and sovereign nation.

We then estimated the population of these villages through a measurement of their architecture using LiDAR data Methods. However, the magnitude, tempo, and ecological effects of this depopulation remain the source of enduring debates.

Without precise, independent native dating Valley AL of human population dynamics, these studies are vulnerable to circular reasoning in which poorly resolved evidence for population decline is used to support the inference of anthropogenic changes in climate and atmosphere, which in turn corroborate the timing and magnitude of depopulation.

Here we use a strong case approach to these issues using independent demographic and paleoecological datasets to build a chronology of population decline, forest growth, and fire regime changes after European contact in the dry forests of the Southwest United States. However, to evaluate the broader effects of depopulation throughout the northern Rio Grande region, we used a larger sample of 1, fire-scarred trees from across the Jemez Mountains region which includes data from MCN and other locations within the Jemez Province, as well as the Valles Caldera to the north and the Pajarito Plateau to the east; Fig.

This larger regional dataset reveals an increase in landscape-scale fires after as well Fig. Between andlandscape-scale fires occurred once every At the same time, landscape-scale fire synchrony increased, suggesting the importance of top-down climatic controls on fire activity This population crash subsequently altered the local environment, spurring the growth of trees and facilitating the spread of frequent forest fires.

Arguments for the anthropogenic origins of 16th century global temperature changes rely on hypothetical and highly contentious population estimates, many of which neglect to incorporate first-order data related directly to Native American demography.

Whereas we are confident that the terminal inhabitation of these villages dates to between andit is likely that smaller agricultural sites such as field houses remained in use for decades thereafter throughout the Jemez Province 2934 Tree establishment at large villages of the Jemez Province. What was the pace of depopulation? The vertical tick marks show fire dates recorded by two or more trees within the grid point plot.

We compare light detection and ranging data, archaeology, dendrochronology, and historical records from the Jemez Province of New Mexico to quantify population losses, establish dates of depopulation events, and determine the extent and timing of forest regrowth and fire regimes between and We present a new formula for the estimation of Pueblo population based on architectural remains and apply this formula to 18 archaeological sites in the Jemez Province. The depopulation of large Jemez villages prompted a shift in fire regimes throughout the Province.

These questions comprise some of the most contested and vexing disputes native dating Valley AL the study of American Indian history. How many Native Americans died as a result of warfare, famine, and diseases introduced from the Old World? Native American populations declined between and CE, instigated by the European colonization of the Americas. By combining our with historical records, we report a model of pre- and post-Columbian population dynamics in the Jemez Province. Or was depopulation more moderate, with indigenous s declining slowly after European colonization?

This fire regime continued into the late s, when intensive livestock grazing and policies of fire suppression disrupted incidents of widespread fire once again MCN master tree-ring fire chronology chart Each horizontal line is a composite chronology of fire scar dates from 4 to 10 trees sampled at grid points GP evenly distributed over ha. These studies are ambiguous, however, in that the observed ecological changes and global temperature changes are roughly coeval, resulting in countervailing interpretations of anthropogenic vs.

The Jemez Province is a physiographic and cultural region of northern New Mexico located in the southwest quadrant of the Jemez Mountains, 55 km north of Albuquerque and 65 km west of Santa Fe Native dating Valley AL. These streams run through deep canyons surrounded by towering, flat-topped mesas.

A dendrochronological study of remnant wood establishes dates of terminal occupation at these sites. For more than a century scholars have deliberated the magnitude and tempo of indigenous population decline between and CE. In recent years, these debates have grown to consider not only the timing and degree of indigenous demographic decline in the Americas, but also its ecological effects. A plurality of these studies share the assumption that Native American population losses initiated a decline in biomass burning afterparticularly in the humid Neotropics.

Recently, scholars have linked indigenous demographic decline, Neotropical reforestation, and shifting fire regimes to global changes in climate, atmosphere, and the Early Anthropocene hypothesis. This increase coincides with the expansion of Franciscan evangelical efforts and the construction of two Catholic missions in the Jemez Province, as well as the early stages of depopulation at the large villages Fig. Afterfine fuels increased on a scale sufficient to convey extensive surface fires once every This rise in the of spreading surface fires indicates that reforestation occurred during the mid- to late 17th century, a result of changing land use patterns brought on by the depopulation of large villages throughout the Jemez Province.

The presence of these late 17th century ceramics specifically Rio Grande Glaze F pottery has led archaeologists to suggest that the large villages of the Jemez Province harbored sizeable populations even aftercalling into question s of demographic collapse contained in historical documents 263235 Sixteenth and 17th century records of population and settlement in the Jemez Province Based on studies of post-Columbian Native American demography, we set out to evaluate four competing hypotheses regarding Jemez population dynamics in the 16th and 17th centuries: i large-scale depopulation occurred before direct Pueblo—European contact, as a result of pandemic disease events that swept north from central Mexico in the s—s the Dobyns hypothesis 3 ; ii native dating Valley AL largest losses occurred from tobetween the first direct contacts and the establishment of permanent colonial settlements the contact hypothesis 3738 ; iii population decline occurred during the early colonial period —after the establishment of missions and sustained daily interactions between Puebloans and Spaniards the mission hypothesis 39 ; or iv no large scale population changes occurred before the null hypothesis To evaluate these hypotheses in light of Early Anthropocene research, we quantified the magnitude of population losses, refined the timing of depopulation events, and studied the effects of demographic decline on forest composition and fire regimes in the Jemez Province.

We measured tree establishment dates to provide evidence for the timing of depopulation at these villages. A dearth of census data hampers the construction of accurate estimates, with no vital records of births or deaths in the Jemez Province surviving the 17th century.

Furthermore, we analyzed tree-ring fire scar data from within the Jemez Province and from locations throughout the larger Jemez Mountains region to examine the effects of depopulation on fire regimes in both local and regional contexts. The MCN dataset has the advantage of being contained entirely within the Jemez Province, in close proximity to the sites we used to generate our population estimates. In light of these studies, we assess these processes in conifer-dominated forests of the Southwest United States.

However, archaeological studies challenge the reliability of these historical chronicles. How many people lived in the Americas in ?
