The Indian Southwest, 1580-1830
demonstrates that, in the face of Europeanconquest, severe drought, and disease, Indians in the Southwest provedremarkably adaptable and dynamic, remaining independent actors andeven prospering. Some tribes temporarily joined Spanish missions or assimilated into other tribes. Others survived by remaining on the fringe of Spanish settlement, migrating, and expanding exchange relationships withother tribes. Still others incorporated remnant bands and individuals andstrengthened their economic systems. The vibrancy of southwestern Indiansocieties today is due in part to the exchange-based political economies their ancestors created almost three centuries ago.
