Mountain Salado

The Salado pottery tradition is very difficult to define but represents a related culture that incorporated elements of earlier cultures spread across regions formerly occupied by Hohokam, Mogollon, and Anasazi groups. Salado sites in New Mexico indicate the eastern edge of a very late manifestation of the Salado in an area earlier occupied by Mimbres Mogollon groups.
