A Brief History of Water Rights in Tularosa Canyon

Our May 2020 GCAS newsletter included a report submitted by one of our friends in the archaeological community, Dave Greenwald, President of the Jornada Research Institute in Tularosa, New Mexico. For those who may have missed it, we re-post it here as a PDF:

Our President Kyle Meredith describes that Greenwald's paper: "...briefly covers a fascinating part of the history of Tularosa water rights (water rights in the Wild West--NOT boring), but the bulk of the paper describes his research of the prehistoric irrigation system constructed by the Pithouse Period Jornada Mogollon Culture (ca. A.D. 600-850). Someday we'll be invited again to join him and his crew to participate in his field studies and excavations, and he's definitely on our radar for a presentation to the GCAS! You can learn more at JornadaResearchInstitute.com."

Thank you for sharing you rpaper, Dave. Stay safe and we will see you soon.
