Up Rio Oso Sites 100 Tipis

The following map shows micaceous clay collection locales used in the archaeological study of Historic and modern Jicarilla pottery production.  Several of the areas are clickable to pictures of sampled clay sources.  Symbols marked as "Rio Oso Sites" and "100 Tipis" are clickable to pages showing photographs of these sites.  The Rio del Oso and the Site of 100 Tipis were occupied by the Jicarilla during the latter 1800s and early 1900s.   Apache micaceous sherds from these sites have been sourced to U.S. Hill and Petaca district clays using neutron activation methods conducted at the Ford Nuclear Reactor Laboratory, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (See results the 1999 Neutron Activation Report).
