Households and Hegemony

Early Creek Prestige Goods, Symbolic Capital, and Social Power

by Cameron B. Wesson

Wesson demonstrates that change within Creek culture in the historic period was shaped by small-scale social units and individual decisions rather than by the effects of larger social and political events. Households and Hegemony enriches our understanding of Creek history and makes a key contribution to comparative archaeological models of cultural change.
