Oneota archaeology, ceramic typology, southeastern Iowa
A ceramic typology for Oneota pottery from the Schmeiser site indicates that the typology is regional in scope. Assessment of the cultural relationships among Oneota sites in southeast Iowa and the state resulted in: l) establishment of an Oneota taxonomy based on site location, changes in shoulder and rim decoration and time; and 2) development of the concept of synchronous change in shoulder motifs on Oneota pottery. It is also suggested that the geographical distribution of radiocarbon dated Oneota sites which share similar shoulder motifs supports migration legends on the spread of Chiwere speaking Siouan groups onto the prairie plains.
