The Promontory tradition dates between approximately A.D. 1250 and 1650 and is confined primarily to the northern Bonneville Basin. It is distinguished by several artifact traits, including distinct moccasin and pottery styles. A large segment of the Promontory population may have consisted of ancestral Apache and Navajo groups as they migrated southward from the subarctic and high plains into the southwest.
