Description: Know Paleo Indian cultural sites are located along the western edge of White Sands National Monument (WHSA) overlooking the Lake Lucero and Alkali Flats, within the deposits of Pleistocene Lake Otero. Sites have also been found along the eastern margins of the monument following prehistoric drainages. Although direct correlation has not been confirmed many of the sites are adjacent to Pleistocene megafauna trackways. Despite its great research potential, its spatial extent has not been completely documented, nor have all of its cultural features been fully recognized. Recent reconnaissance surveys have found a strong correlation with the prehistoric lake shores; across the basin similar discoveries have been made. The focus of this project is to correct baseline data to develop a nomination and management plan if warranted.
