Cultural change should not be viewed as the slow breakdown of a "traditional" culture through absorption but rather as the blending of different components of each interacting cultural group, blurring elements through temporal change. A modified version of the core-periphery model in which both micro-level and macro-level perspectives are utilized provides a framework in which to study interethnic relations within the zone of cultural interaction.

The flexibility to reformulate their sociopolitical structure continued throughout the contact period, allowing their participation...

Tiq'atl'ena Bena, TAL-049, is a multi-component archaeological site in the Sustina River Basin of Cook Inlet, southcentral Alaska, along Hewitt Lake near the confluence of the Yentna and Skwentna Rivers in the Talkeetna USGS quadrangle. The site consists of six localities, all of which contain similar archaeological features. Archaeological excavations have been performed in one semi-subterannean house feature in one of these localities (Wrathall Locality). Twelve other semi-subterannean features are documented in the Wrathall Locality but none have been excavated or tested. The excavations completed provide evidence of historic and prehistoric occupations. These occupations date from 4410 ± 90 years Before Present...
