ARIDOAMERICA denotes an ecological region spanning Mexico
Mexico
and the Southwest United States , defined by the presence of the culturally significant staple foodstuff Phaseolus acutifolius , a drought-resistant bean. Its dry, arid climate and geography stand in contrast to the verdant Mesoamerica
Mesoamerica
of present-day central Mexico
Mexico
into Central America to the south and east, and the higher, milder "island" of Oasisamerica
Oasisamerica
to the north. Aridoamerica
Aridoamerica
overlaps with both.

Because of the relatively hard conditions, the pre-Columbian people in this region developed distinct cultures and subsistence farming patterns. The region has only 120 mm (4.7 in) to 160 mm (6.3 in) of annual precipitation. The sparse rainfall feeds seasonal creeks and waterholes.

The term was introduced by Gary Paul Nabhan in 1985, building on prior work by anthropologists A.L. Kroeber
A.L. Kroeber
and Paul Kirchhoff to identify a "true cultural entity" for the desert region.

SUBSISTENCE

Distribution of tribes called Chichimeca
Chichimeca
, ca. 1550

The Chichimeca
Chichimeca
, an umbrella term for several tribes used by the Nahua people , were hunter-gatherers in Aridoamerica
Aridoamerica
grasslands. They gathered magueys , yucca flowers , mesquite beans, chia seeds , and cacti , including the paddles of fruits of nopal cactus. The century plant ( Agave americana ) is a particularly important resource in the region.

Despite dry conditions, Aridoamerica
Aridoamerica
boasts the greatest diversity of wild and domesticated tepary beans ( Phaseolus acutifolius ) and is a possible site of their domestication. Maize
Maize
cultivation reached Aridoamerica
Aridoamerica
by about 2100 BCE. Archaeologists disagree whether the plant was introduced by Uto-Aztecan migrants from Mesoamerica
Mesoamerica
or spread either northward or southward from other groups by cultural borrowing.

In Baja California , fishing and hunting provided food, as did harvesting acorns, nopal, pine nuts , and other native plants.

Historically, people of Aridoamerica
Aridoamerica
coppiced willows, that is, tree trunks were cut to a stump to encourage the growth of slender shoots. These willow shoots were woven tightly to produce waterproof, cooking baskets. Fire-heated rocks were plunged into a gruel in the baskets to cook.
