This hypothesis includes hunting weapons, since the pursuit of sea otters, fish, whales, and almost all other game continued to be carried out using indigenous techniques, and because trade in guns was prohibited. More Russian trade items should be evident in village sites of the "semidependent" and "independent" regions, where trade strategy was similar to that of English and American companies. In the Tlingit region, where active trade with Spanish, British, and American sea otter vessels was conducted outside of Russian control, very large and diverse assemblages of European trade goods can be expected, including firearms.

These observations suggest that New World colonial societies should be viewed as dynamic systems in which sectarian efforts to uphold the distinctions of class, race, and ethnicity were continually countered by the tendency of such distinctions to erode through material, genetic, and cultural interchange between proximate populations. Such exchanges were promoted by the economic interdependency that linked all levels of colonial societies, and by the gender imbalances that characterized most colonizing groups.

Use of traditional Native American foods, clothing, building materials, and locally made tools and utensils-in other words, a relatively low overall "import content" -should therefore be evident in archaeological assemblages from worker-occupied houses. , sewing), knowledge of local resources, and local social connections to the household economy of such unions. Because of their even lower rates of monetary compensation, households composed of male Creole or Native American hunters and their wives are likely to be represented by domestic assemblages that contain even smaller proportions of imported manufactures.
