As an archeologist who works in the state of Colorado, I must make a
comment. The Athapaskan peoples on the plains were there when
Coronado arrived. His exploration of the southern plains reveals that
Athapaskan peoples were in Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma at that
time 16th century. Another point, The Dismal River Culture is
prehistoric Athpaskan, and they are found throughout eastern Colorado
up to the 17th century. Sometime in the late 16th or early 17th is
the earliest that Athpaskan speakers could have entered the
Southwestern United States Region.
