Rethinking Anthropological Perspectives on Migration

The impact of migration on cognitive geography and its implication for song transformation is considered in light of archaeological evidence of O'odham migration during the historic period in the district of S-cuk Kavick on the Gila River Indian Reservation (American Southwest). O'odham migration is considered in terms of the relationship between landscape and spaces in which infrastructure, as the association of facilities and ideas that allow societies to function, mediates between the two. In particular migration is contrasted with the concept of village drift, which has been used previously to describe gradual movements over large areas and periods of time. Migratory dislocations or relocations are considered as well as their ideological implications, including the processes implied by the translation of conceptual or cognitive spaces (landscape ideologies) to new areas. One way in which cognitive geography is expressed is through traditional O'odham song practices.
