Abstract

Ethnographic literature and popular opinion conjoin in the belief that American Pueblo Indians reside in endogamous communities. Since one pueblo community is part of our population under study, it behooves us to assess its genic relation to the wider population of the Chama Valley-San Juan Jurisdiction area. If it is endogamous, then, of course, it is a genetic isolate and, as such, contributes nothing on the biological level to the outside population. If, on the other hand, the pueblo is exogamous, we need to know how and what is transferred both to the outside population and from the outside population to the pueblo.
