Best Answer

Many of the early societies in Mesoamerica varied in their complexities. In what is now the southwestern United States, the dry, hostile environment produced survival problems and the societies were not as complex as the ones in what is southeastern Mexico as one example. In the American southwest the so-called Desert tradition evolved. This included Southern California as well as the the latter area. The major solutions posed to survival itself precluded advanced development. A subsistence pattern developed. For archaeologists, there was one advantage for their explorations. Unlike the wet, humid areas of the Yucatan peninsula, the American southwest's dry climate preserved many artifacts from the Native Tribes civilizations.
