About Lindsay M. Montgomery

Lindsay is an anthropological archaeologist whose work focuses on the material practices of mobile groups during the late pre-contact and colonial periods. Her research employs a collaborative and multi-disciplinary approach, which brings together archaeological, archival, oral historical, and ethnographic sources to understand the social practices of mobile groups, such as the Ute, Jicarilla Apache, and Comanche. Her current research revolves around a collaborative research project with Picuris Pueblo in northern New Mexico. This work explores the social and economic relationship between Picuris Pueblo and the Jicarilla Apache through an investigation of agricultural practices at the Pueblo between 1400-1750 CE.
