Miwok Material Culture: Indian Life of the Yosemite Region Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is an authoritative source for anyone interested in the history and heritage of the Yosemite Miwok. It is a classic study of Miwok tribe culture written by two noted anthropologists and covering topics such as shelter, food, art, and industry. The volume includes forty-eight illustrated plates of artifacts, an extensive bibliography, and many informative maps. For students or anyone interested in Yosemite Indian culture, the book is a fascinating read.

Synopsis:

Originally published in 1933 by the Milwaukee Public Museum, this is a classic study of the Miwok Indian culture based upon data obtained from Miwok informants shortly after 1900. Because these people came into contact with Euro- Americans at a relatively early time, their numbers were depleted and their culture impacted more significantly than other California Indians during the period. This book is as complete a coverage of the Miwoks as exists.
