The Salado lived in a relatively small area of west-central Arizona. This area formed the crossroads of three cultural traditions: the Ancient Puebloan, Mogollon and Hohokam. According to recent research, the Salado may not represent a separate culture but a variation in the customs of one of the three local cultures. Salado pottery is unique and easily identifiable. The design on this bowl includes a break in the boldly painted, black line just below the interior rim, which is a common element in Salado pottery.
