Descripción

An archaeologist on a team excavating a 500-year-old pueblo in 1934 New Mexico has visitors from the past who make him rethink his career. This is a ghost story if you want it to be, a love story if you want it to be, and a self-discovery story if you want that — all in the context of the jazz age soon after the end of the Indian Wars.

There they were and suddenly they were forgotten for just a second, nobody thought about them, and then they were gone.

—Sherman Alexie

Shadows of a Lost Time

JUNE OF 1934 in New Mexico—the U.S. Cavalry had fought its last battle with Indians in a skirmish with Yaqui Indians in Arizona in 1918, and a posse of Utah settlers defeated Utes and Paiutes in 1923 in what was known as The Last Indian Uprising.

After almost four hundred years of conflict, the Indian Wars had ended.

Without enough warriors to fight back any more, the conquered tribes couldn’t stop the next phase of their marginalization when archaeologists moved in to dissemble and study what the dominant society had won.

The archaeologists started with the lost towns where the Indian Wars began in 1540 near Albuquerque with the expedition and warfare of Francisco Vázquez de Coronado.
