Excerpt

The region to which the name Jemez plateau is here applied lies in the northern central part of New Mexico on the west side of the Rio Grande del Norte. The greater portion of the plateau is occupied by the Jemez forest reserve. Six Indian reservations or grants border on or lie partly within its limits; these are the San Juan, Santa Clara, San Ildefonso, Cochiti, Santo Domingo, and Jemez. Of the remaining portion all that is not embraced within private land grants and small holdings is public land. The ruins referred to in this bulletin are distributed as shown on the map (pl. XVII). In many cases locations are only approximate, owing to the lack of authoritative surveys. The map was prepared by the Forestry Office, the data being furnished by the Forest Service of the Agricultural Department, the General Land Office and the Geological Survey of the Interior Department, and by the War Department, with corrections and additions by the author. The archeological features of the map are the result of investigations of the Bureau of American Ethnology, and are to be revised and extended as soon as the necessary data are obtained.
