dc.description There are many indications that cultural traits, both material and non-material, were introduced into the American Southwest during prehistoric times. As these items coincide rather remarkably with traits found in Mexico, group lines of movement or trade routes are presumed to have existed during the prehistoric. This paper presents a tentative assessment of these early routes. In analyzing this question, three general possibilities will be investigated. The first is the West Coast Route, following the Gulf of California coastal lowlands into Sonora, then turning due north with the grain of the topography to enter what is now southeastern Arizona. The second possibility is to follow the grain of the topography within the Sierra Madre Occidental all the way into southeastern Arizona, following the north-south sections of the stream valleys. The last possibility is the route at the eastern base of the Sierra Madre Occidental, coinciding with the western margins of the interior basins. en
