        The Indian Tribes of North America by John R. Swanton

        The territory of the present State of California was discovered
        in 1542 by a Portuguese navigator in the Spanish service, J. R.
        Cabrillo. In 1578 Sir Francis Drake landed at Drake's Bay, opened
        communication with the natives, and took possession of the
        country in the name of England, calling it New Albion. It was
        explored by the Spaniard S. Viscayno in 1602, but no attempt was
        made at colonization until the Franciscan Fathers established a
        mission at San Diego in 1769. Within the next 50 years they
        founded 21 missions and gathered 20,000 Indians about them, but
        the number of neophytes continually fell off and the power of the
        missions declined with them, especially after Mexican government
        had succeeded to Spanish. Transfer of the country to the United
        States and the rush of immigrants following upon the discovery of
        gold in 1848 was still more disastrous to the Indians and this
        disaster extended to parts of the State which the Spaniards had
        not reached. From this time on the history of the Indians of this
        area is one long story of debauchery and extermination.
        Reservations were set aside for most of the tribes, but the
        greater part of the survivors live scattered through the country
        as squatters or on land purchased by themselves.

             In dealing with the tribes of California, I have adopted the
        names given by Dr. Kroeber in his Handbook of the Indians of
        California (1925). An inspection of these shows us at once,
        however, that the tribal concept in most parts of the State is
        one imposed upon the Indians as a result of ethnological
        investigation rather than something recognized by themselves. It
        has a dialectic rather than a governmental or ceremonial base,
        but it is the best that can be done unless we adopt the
        impracticable alternative of treating each village group as a
        tribe. It is to be understood that, from the ordinary point of
        view as to what constitutes a tribe, this expedient is largely
        artificial. Under these circumstances it has seemed best not to
        follow a strictly alphabetic system throughout, or rather, to
        enter those tribes defined by their names as parts of larger
        groups under the more common group names, the qualifying word
        following, as: Paiute, Northern, and Yuki, Coast, instead of
        Northern Paiute and Coast Yuki.

        Connections in which they have become noted.- That few names of
        California tribes have found permanent lodgment in the geography
        of the region is not surprising when we consider the small number
        of names of this kind at all prominent. This is in keeping with
        the fact that tribal organizations as they were known in eastern
        North America were wanting over much of the State, and that where
        they existed they were generally small and insignificant. It also
        happens that a few real tribal names, or names that have been
        used to cover tribal groups, include peoples which extended into
        neighboring States and have been treated elsewhere. Under this
        hend come the names of Modoc County, Klamath River, Mohave River,
        Mono County and Lake, and Piute Peak. Still other names are
        derived from villages and small tribes, mere subdivisions of the
        main bodies. Among these may be mentioned Tuolumne County,
        Mokelumne Peak and River, Cosumnes River, Kaweah River. While the
        designation of the Shasta is a conspicuous one it is rather the
        mountain which has given name to the tribe than the tribe to the
        mountain, though in fact both are derived from a chief of the
        Shasta people. Following from the use of the term for Mount
        Shasta we have Shasta River, Shasta, Shasta Retreat, Shasta
        Springs. The history of the name Hupa has been somewhat similar.
        It has remained attached to the valley to which it was originally
        applied and to the tribe secondarily. Nevertheless, the valley
        name now serves to preserve in memory that of the people who
        occupied it.

        Achomawi. From adzuma or achoma, "river."

        Ko'm-maidum, Maidu name, meaning "snow people."

        Shawsash, Yuki name for the Achomawi taken to Round Valley
        Reservation.

        Connections.- The Achomawi were originally classed with the
        Atsugewi as one stock under the name Palaihnihan, the Achomawan
        stock of Merriam (1926), and this in turn constitutes the eastern
        branch of the Shastan stock, which in turn 18 now placed under
        the widely spread Hokan family.

        Location.- In the drainage area of Pit River from near Montgomery
        Creek in Shasta County to Goose Lake on the Oregon line, with the
        exception of the territory watered by Burney, Hat, and Horse or
        Dixie Valley Creeks.

                          Subdivisions

        Kroeber (1925) gives the following:

             Achomawi, on Fall River.
             Astaklwi, in upper Hot Springs Valley.
             Atuami, in Big Valley.
             Hamnawi, on the South Fork of Pit River.
             Hantiwi, in lower Hot Springs Valley.
             Ilmawi, on the south slide of Pit River opposite Fort Crook.
             Madehsi, the lowest on Pit River along the big bend.

        C. H. Merriam (1926) says that Achomawi is the Madehsi name for
        the Astnkiwi which occupied all of Hot Springs Valley, and he
        adds the names of two other tribes between the last mentioned and
        Goose Lake, the Ko-se-al-lak'-te, and, higher up, at the lower
        end of the lake, the Ha'-we-si'-doc.

        Population.- Together with the Atsugewi, the Achomawi are
        estimated by Kroeber (1925) to have numbered 3,000 in 1770; in
        1910 there were 985. According to the census of 1930, the entire
        Shastan stock numbered 844, and in 1937, 418 "Pit River" Indians
        were enumerated, only a portion of the stock apparently.

        Alliklik. Designation bestowed by the Ventureno Chumash; meaning
        unknown.

        Connections.- The Alliklik belonged to the Californian group of
        the Shoshonean division of the Uto-Aztecan linguistic stock,
        their closest relatives probably being the Serrano.

        Location.- On the upper Santa Clara River.

                             Villages

        Akavavi Kashtu, Etseng, Huyang, Kuvung, and Pi'idhuku (on Piru
        Creek, the last mentioned at Piru); Kamulus (on Castac Creek);
        Kashtuk Tsawayung (on a branch of Castac Creek).

        Population.- The Alliklik together with the Serrano, Vanyume, and
        Kitanemuk, numbered 3,500 in 1770 and 150 in 1910. The census of
        1930 returned 361 southern California Shoshoneans.

        Atsugewi. Their own name or that which the Achomnwi applied to
        them; significance unknown.

        Adwanuqdji, Ilmawi name.

        Hat Creek Indians, popular English name.

        Tcunolyana, Yana nsme.

        Connections.- With the Achomawi, the Atsugewi constituted the
        Palaihnihan or eastern group of the Shastan stock, more recently
        placed by Dixon and Kroeber (1919) in the Hokan family.

        Location.- On Burney, Hat, and Dixie Valley or Horse Creeks.

                             Subdivisions

        Kroeber (1925) gives: Apwarukei (Dixie Valley people), Hat Creek
        people (native name unknown), and Wamari" (Burney Valley people).
        C. G. Merrism (1926) calls the Hat Creek people collectively
        At-soo-ka'-e (Atsugewi) and treats most of the Burney Valley
        Indians as part of the Atsugewi proper.

        Population.- Kroeber estimates that in 1770 there were 3,000 of
        the Atsugewi and the Achomawi together. The Shastan Indians
        numbered 844 in 1930.

        Bear River Indians. A body of Indians living along Bear River in
        the present Humboldt County for whom no suitable native name has
        been preserved. Also called:

             Ni'ekeni', name they applied to themselves and to the
        Mattole.

        Connections.- The Bear River Indians belonged to the Athapascan
        linguistic family, and were most, closely connected with the
        Mattole, Sinkyone, and Nongatl tribes to the south and east.

        Location.- As given above. (See North Carolina for a tribe
        similarly named.)

        Indian Affairs reported 23 "Bear River" Indians in 1937.

        Cahuilla. A name perhaps of Spanish origin, but its significance
        is unknown. Also spelled Kawia.

        Connections.- The Cahuilla belonged to the southern California
        group of the Shoshonean division of the Uto-Aztecan stock.

        Tulare County.

        Chemehuen. The Yuman name for this tribe and for the Paiute;
        significance unknown. Also called:

             Mat-hat-e-vatch, Yuma name, meaning "northerners."
             Ta'n-ta'wats, own name, meaning "southern men."

        Connections.- The Chemehuevi were a part of the true Paiute and
        were associated with them and the Ute in one linguistic
        subdivision of the Shoshonean division of the Uto-Aztecan
        linguistic stock.

        Location.- Anciently in the eastern half of the Mohave Desert. At
        a later date the Chemehuevi settled on Cottonwood Island, in

        group of the Athapascan linguistic stock.

        Location.- On or near lower Redwood Creek from near the inland
        edge of the heavy redwood belt to a few miles above Minor Creek.

                                 Villages

        River.
             Meyemma, given by Gihhs (1853).

        Connections.- Originally considered a distinct stock, the
        Chimariko are now classed in the Hokan linguistic family.

        Location.- On the canyon of Trinity River from about the mouth of
        New River to Canyon Creek.

        Also called:

             Santa Barbara Indians, a popular name.

        Connections.- At first considered a distinct linguistic stock,
        the Chumash are now included in the larger Hokan family.

        Location.- The Chumash occupied the three northern islands of the
        Santa Barbara group, the coast from Malibu Canyon to Estero Bay,
        and extended inland to the range that divides the drainage of the
        great valley from the coast, except on the west where their
        frontier was the watershed between the Salinas and the Santa
        Maria and short coast streams, and on the east where some small
        fragments had spilled over into part of the most southerly
        drainage of the San Joaquin-Kern system.

        Cabrillo's sixteenth century relation gives the names of a number
        of villages, part of which Kroeber (1925) has been able to identify,
        at least with a fair degree of probability, while some are
        evidently duplications. Eliminating the duplications, we have the
        following additional village names:

        Aguin.                          Naebuc (or Anacbuc).
        Anacot.                         Nocos.
        Asimu.                          Olesino.
        Bis.                            Opia (or Opistopia).
        Caacat (or Cancae), though      Potoltuc (Paltate, Partocac, or
          the last may be a synonym          Paltocac).
          for Ciucut (Siuhtun).         Quiman.
        Gua (or Quannegua).             Sopono (Misesopono, or

        Maquinanoa.                     Xotococ.
        Misinagua.                      Yutum.

        Population.- The number of Chumash has been estimated by Kroeber
        (1925) at 10,000 in 1770; at the present time a mere remnant is
        left, given as 38 in the census of 1910 and 14 in that of 1930.

        Costanoan. From Spanish Costanos, "coast people." Also called:

             Mutsun, Gatschet extended this term over these and other
        peoples.

        Connections.- The Costanoan formed one division of the Penutian
        linguistic stock.

        Location.- On the coast between San Francisco Bay and Point Sur,
        and inland probably to the Mount Diablo Range.

                                Subdivisions

        Esselen. Probably the name of a village; significance unknown.

        Connections.- Originally given the status of a distinct stock,
        the Esselen are now placed in the Hokan linguistic family, their
        affinities being rather with the Yuman division, to the south,
        and with the Pomo, Yana, and other groups to the north than with
        their closer neighbors of this stock, the Salinan and Chumash

        branches, particularly a beautiful stretch of 8 miles known as
        Hupa (or Hoopa) Valley, and on New River. C. H. Merriam (1926)
        treats these latter as a distinct tribe of Shastan affinities,
        but J. P. Harrington (personal information) states that they were
        Hupa.

        Takimitlding and Totltsasding.

        Waugullewatl, the name perhaps Yurok; said to have been in the
        upper part of the Hupa territory.

        Population.- Kroeber (1925) places the number of Hupa at 1,000 in
        1770; the census of 1910 returned 500. In 1937 the United States
        Office of Indian Affairs returned 575. (See Bear River Indians.)

        Connection in which they have become noted.- A village in
        Humboldt County, preserves the name of the Hupa.

        Juaneno. Derived from the mission of San Juan Capistrano. Also
        called:

             Gaitchim, given by Gatschet (1876).
             Netela, given by Hale (1846), meaning "my language."

        Connections.- The Juaneno belonged to the Shoshonean branch of
        the Uto-Aztecan linguistic stock, their speech being a variant of
        Luiseno.

        Location.- From the Pacific Ocean to the west of the southern
        continuation of the Sierra Santa Ana. Southward, toward the
        Luiseno, the boundary ran between the San Onofre and Las Pulgas;
        on the north, toward the Gabrielino, it is said to have followed
        Alisos Creek.

                                 Villages

        Population.- The Juaneho were estimated by Kroeber (1925) at
        1,000 in 1770; the census of 1910 returned 16. (See Alliklik.)

        Kamia. From their own term Kamiyai or Knmiyahi, which they
        applied also to the Diegueho. Also called:

             Comeya, common synonym used by Bartlett in 1854 and adopted
        in Handbook of American Indians (Hodge, 1907, 1910).
             I'-um O'-otam, Pima name for Kamia and Diegueho.
        New River Indians, from their location.
             Quemaya, so called by Garces in 1775-76.
        Tipai, own name, also meaning "person."
             Yum, same as I'-um.

        Connections.- They belonged to the Yuman stock of Powell now
        considered a subdivision of the Hokan family, their closest
        affinities being with the eastern Diegueno who were sometimes
        considered one tribe with themselves.

        Location.- In Imperial Valley, and on the banks of the sloughs
        connecting it with Colorado River. (See also Mexico.)

                                Villages

        There were no true villages.

        Population.- Gifford (1931) says there could not have been more
        than a few hundred Kamia in aboriginal times. Heintzelman (1857)
        gives 254 under the chief Fernando in 1849. (See Diegueno.)

        Connection in which they have become noted.- Whatever notoriety
        the Kamia, an inconspicuous tribe, has attained is due entirely
        to the fame of their valley home.

        Karok. Properly Karuk, signifying in their own language
        "upstream," but not used as a tribal designation.

        Ara, given by Gatschet (1890), signifying "man."

        Ivap'i, Shasta name.

        Orleans Indians, a name sometimes locally used, especially
        downstream from the Karok territory.

        Petsikla, Yurok name, meaning "upstream."

        Connections.- Originally considered an independent stock, the
        Karok are now schooled in a much larger linguistic connection
        known as the Hokan family. Their closest relatives are the
        Chimariko and Shasta.

        Location.- On the middle course of Klamath River between the
        Yurok and Shasta and all of the branches of the Klamath except
        the upper course of Salmon River.

                               Subdivisions

        The Karok were divided into the Upper Karok above Independence
        Creek and the Lower Klamath below that stream.

        at about 1,500 in 1770. In 1905, 576 were returned, and in 1910,
        775, but the latter figure is probably too high, though the
        census of 1930 returned 755.

        Kato. A Pomo place name meaning "lake." Also called:

             Batem-da-hai-ee, given by Gibbs (1853).
             Kai Po-mo, given by Powers (1877).
             Laleshiknom, Yuki name.
             Tlokeang, own name.

        stock, and spoke a dialect peculiar to themselves.

        Location.- On the uppermost course of the South Fork of Eel
        River.

                                 Villages

        There are said to have been nearly 50 of these, probably an
        overestimate, but none of their names are known.

        Population.- Kroeber (1925) estimates 500 Kato in 1770; about 50
        persons, mostly full-bloods are still reckoned as Kato. (See Bear
        River Indians.)

        Kawaiisu. So-called by the Yokuts; the signification of the word
        is unknown.

        Connections.- The Kawaiisu belonged to the Shoshonean branch of
        the Uto-Aztecan linguistic family, and were a more immediate
        offshoot, apparently, of the Chemehuevi.

        Location.- In the Tehachapi Mountains.

        Population.- Kroeber (1925) estimates an aboriginal Kawaiisu
        population of perhaps 500 and a present (1925) population of
        nearly 150 . (See Alliklik.)

        Kitanemuk. Perhaps from the stem ki, "house,"; other synonyms are
        Kikitanum, and Kikitamkar.

        Connections.- The Kitanemuk belonged to the Shoshonean division
        of the Uto-Aztecan linguistic stock and to a subgroup which
        included also the Alliklik, Vanyumc and Serrano.

        Location.- On upper Tejon and Paso Creeks, the streams on the
        rear side of the Tehachapi Mountains in the same vicinity and the
        small creeks draining the northern slope of the Liebre and
        Sawmill Range, with Antelope Valley and the western-most end of
        the Mohave Desert.

                                Villages

        The present principal Kitanemuk village is called Nakwalki-ve,
        and is situated where Tejon Creek breaks out of the hills. (Other
        names given do not seem unquestionably those of villages).

        Population.- Kroeber (1925) estimates that in 1770 there were
        3,500 Serrano, Vanyume, Kitanemuk, and Alliklik, and that these
        were represented by about 150 in 1910. (See Alliklik.)

        Konomihu. Their own name, significance unknown.

        Connections.- The Konomihu was the most divergent of the Shastan
        group of tribes of the Hokan linguistic family.

        Location.- Territory centering about the forks of Saknon River.

                                Villages

        The principal Konomihu village, called, apparently by the Karok,
        Shamnam, was between the forks of Salmon River in Siskiyou
        County, on the right ride of the south branch just above the
        junction.

        Population.- Together with the Chimariko, New River Shasta, and
        Okwanuchu, the Konomihu are estimated by Kroeber (1925) to have
        numbered about 1,000 in 1770; they are not now enumerated
        separately from the Shasta, of whom 844 were returned in 1930.

        Koso. Significance unknown.

        Ke-at, given by Gatschet (Wheeler Survey, p. 411, 1879).

        Panamint, name more often used.

        Connections.- The Koso formed the western-most extension of the
        Shoshoni-Comanche branch of the Shoshonean division of the
        Uto-Aztecan linguistic stock.

        Location.- On a barren tract of land in the southeastern part of
        the State between the Sierra and the State of Nevada, and
        including Owens Lake, the Coso, Argus, Panamint, and Funeral
        Mountains and the intervening valleys.

        Population.- Kroeber (1925) estimates an aboriginal Koso
        population of not over 500; since 1880 they have been placed at
        about 100 to 150.

        Lassik. The name derived from that of a chief.

        Connections.- The Lassik belonged to the Athapascan linguistic
        family and were connected very closely with the Nongatl, who lay
        just to the north.

        Location.- On a stretch of Eel River, from a few miles above the
        mouth of the South Fork not quite to Kekawaka Creek; also Dobbins
        Creek, an eastern affluent of the main stream, and Soldier Basin at
        the head of the North Fork; to the east they extended to the head
        of Mad River.

        Population.- Kroeber (1925) estimates that in 1770, along with
        the Nongatl and Sinkyone, the Lassik numbered 2,000, and in 1910,
        100. (See Alliklik.)

        Luiseno. From the name of the Mission of San Luis Rey de Francia.
        Also called:

             Ghecham or Khecham, from the native name of San Luis Rey
        Mission.

        Connections.- The Luiseno belonged to the Shoshonean division of
        the Uto-Aztecan linguistic family.

        Location.- In the southwest part of the state from the coast
        toward but wholly west of the divide that extends south from

        Inhabited sites not included among the above were Hoktem, Kiski,
        Kphes, Natoma, Tankum, Tsamnk, Wesnak, and Wili.

        The following list of Northwestern Maidu "districts" or
        "tribelet" was given to Dr. Kroeber by a Wintun half-breed, who
        had spent most of his life associated with the Chico Maidu:

        Shi'da-wi, between Sacramento River and lower Pine Creek.

        Mu'li, on the Sacramento between Pine and Chico Creeks.

        Ts'eno or Ch'e'no, on the west side of the river about opposite
        the mouth of Chico Creek.

        Su'`nusi, on the Sacramento from Chico Creek to the Llano Seco or
        Parrott grant about opposite Jacinto or a couple of miles above.

        Batsi', near Jacinto, on the west side, opposite and perhaps
        including the Llano Seco grant.

        Pi'nhuk, the principal settlement, at Rutte City, of a tribelet
        covering a considerable extent of country.

        Micho'pdo, from Dayton to Chico east of Little Chico Creek.

        O'da-wi, from Chico City water tank to the foothills and from
        Edgar slough to Sandy Gulch.

        E'sken, from Durham to the foothills and Butte Creek to Clear
        Creek.

        Shi'udu, from Clear Creek to Feather River and from near Oroville
        to past Liveoak.

        Ku'lu, east of Shi'udu from Feather River toward the foothills
        about as far as the Oroville branch of the Southern Pacific
        Railroad and from Oroville inclusive south not quite to
        Marysville.

        Yu'pu, from the Southern Pacific bridge over the Feather River
        north of Marysville to about 2 miles south of the city and from a
        short distance west of the Feather to the foothills (this was a
        Nishinam village).

        Dr. Kroeber (1925) attempts to reconstruct the names of the
        Nishinnm or Southern Mnidu tribelets as follows: Following
        downstream: Yupu (at mouth of Yuba into Feather River), Kochuk or
        (and) Yokol-Liman-Hokok, Wolok or Ola (at efflux of Feather into
        Sacramento), Leuchi, Wijuna, Totola or Nawean, Pujune (on
        American River just above its mouth), Sek or Sekumne, Kadema and
        perhaps others up American River, Sam (below Sacramento city).
        This is incomplete.

        Population.- Kroeber (1925) estimates that 9,000 Maidu about the
        year 1770 would be a liberal estimate; the census of 1910
        returned 1,100, and that of 1930 only 93.

        Mattole. Perhaps from the name of a village. Also called:

             Tul'bush, Wailaki name, meaning "foreigners."

        Connections.- The Mattole constitute one of the primary divisions
        of those Indians of the Athapascan stock living in California.

        Location.- On Bear River and Mattole River drainages; also on a
        few miles of Eel River and its Van Dusen Fork immediately above
        the Wiyot.

        Population.- Kroeber (1925) estimates that there were 500 Mattole
        in 1770; the census of 1910 returned 34, including 10 full-bloods.
        (See Bear River Indians.)

        Miwok. The native word signifying "people."

        Connections.- Originally a distinct stock in the classificatory
        system of Powell, Miwok has now been made a subdivision of the
        Penutian linguistic family.

        Location.- The Miwok lived in three detached groups as follows:
        (1) The main body on the long western slope of the Sierra Nevada
        between Fresno and Cosumnes Rivers and in that part of the valley
        which is intersected by the winding arms of the deltas of the San
        Joaquin and the Sacramento; (2) the Coast Miwok from the Golden
        Gate north to Duncan's Point and eastward to Sonoma Creek; and
        (3) the Lake Miwok in the basin of Clear Lake, including the
        drainage of two small streams flowing into the lowest mile or two
        of Clear Lake, and the southern bank of Cache Creek, the lake
        outlet, for a short distance beyond.

                               Subdivisions

        Apart from the natural groups indicated above, the following
        dialectic subdivisions may be made out:

        The Lake Miwok identical with the geographical group just
        described.

        The Bodega Miuok, about Bodega Bay in the coastal area.

        The Coast Miwok, occupying the rest of the coastal area.

        The Plains Miwok, in the deltas of the San Joaquin and Cosumnes
        Rivers.

        The Northern Miwok, in the upper valleys of Mokelumne and
        Calaveras Rivers.

        Central Miwok, in the upper valleys of the Stanislaus and
        Tuolumne.

        The Southern Miwok, along the headwaters of the Merced and
        Chowchilla and on Mariposa Creek.

        The Lake Miwok were furthermore subdivided into two, or possibly
        three, district or tribal groups: (1) about the present Lower
        Lake, (2) on the headwaters of Putah Creek, and perhaps (3) in
        Pope Valley.

        Many other village names have been recorded, but the above list
        contains all those which are well authenticated independent
        settlements.

        Population.- Kroeber (1925) estimates that in 1770 there were
        about 500 Lake Miwok 1,500 Coast Miwok, and 9,000 Plains and
        Sierra Miwok, bringing the total to 11,000. The census of 1910
        returned 670, but Kroeber estimates about 700 of the Plains and
        Sierra Miwok alone. The census of 1930 returned 491.

        Modoc. This tribe extended into the northern part of the State.
        (See Oregon.)

        Mohave. The Mohave occupied some territory in the neighborhood of
        the Colorado River. (See Arizona.)

        Nicoleno. From San Nicolas, the most eastward of the Santa
        Barbara Islands.

        Connections.- They belonged to the Shoshoncan Division of the
        Uto-Aztecan linguistic stock, but their more immediate
        affiliations are uncertain.

        Location.- on the island above mentioned.

        Population.- Kroeber (1925) gives an estimate of their population
        in conjunction with the Gabrielino and Fernandeno (q. v.). (See
        also Alliklik.)

        Nongatl. Significance unknown. Also called:

             Saia, by the Hupa, along with other Athapascans to the
        south; meaning "far off."

        Connections.- The Nongatl belonged to the Athapascan linguistic
        family and were closely connected with the Lassik (q. v.).

        Cache Creek Barrett places Pulupulu, Churup, Kachituli, also Moso
        (at Capay). C. H. Merriam (1929) gives Koph' (Kope) (in the broad

        Population.- (See Wintun.)

        Pomo. From the native ending -pomo or -poma, placed after the
        names of village or local groups, the exact meaning of which is
        unknown. Also called:

             Nokonmi, Yuki name.

        Connections.- The Pomo were originally placed in a distinct
        linguistic stock (Kulanapan) but are now attached to the widely
        scattered Hokan family.

        Location.- The Pacific Coast between Cleone and Duncan's Point,
        and inland, with some interruptions, as far as Clear Lake; there
        was a detached group on Stony Creek.

                               Subdivisions

        The Pomo were divided dialectically into the following groups:

        Salt Pomo or Northeastern Pomo, on the headwaters of Stony Creek.

        Eastern Pomo, on the northern and southern effluents of Clear
        Lake.

        Southeastern Pomo, about Lower Lake.

        Northern Pomo, from the northern boundary of Pomo territory to

        Navarro River and some distance above Ukiah on Russian River.

        Central Pomo, from the above boundaries to Gualala on the coast
        and a point north of Cloverdale on Russian River.

        Southern Pomo or Gallinomero, in the inland portion of the
        remaining Pomo territory.

        Southwestern or Gualala Pomo, on the coast section of the
        remaining territory.

        Certain divisions larger than villages were recognized in an
        indefinite way by the people themselves.

        group.

        Population.- Kroeber (1925) estimates 8,000 Pomo in 1770; the
        census of 1910 returned 777, but this figure perhaps does not
        include all, as Kroeber gives 1,200 for the same year. According
        to the census of 1930, there were then 1,143.

        Salinan. From Salinas River which drains most of their territory.

        Connections.- Formally considered a distinct linguistic stock,
        they are now connected with the Hokan linguistic family.

        Location.- From the headwaters of the Salinas- or perhaps only
        from the vicinity of the Santa Margarita Divide- north to Santa
        Lucia Peak and an unknown point in the valley somewhere south of
        Soledad; and from the sea presumably to the main crest of the
        Coast Range.

                               Subdivisions

        On linguistic grounds the Salinan have been divided into the San
        Miguel Salinas on the upper course of Salinas River, the San
        Antooio Salinas below the preceding to Costanoan territory, and
        the Playano along the coast.

             Tsilakaka, placed conjecturally near San Simeon.

        Population.- Kroeber (1925) estimates that there may have been
        3,000 Salinan in 1770 but that 2,000 is a safer estimate; about
        40 remain. The census of 1910 returned 16; that of 1930, none.

        Population.- Kroeber (1925) estimates that there were about 2,000
        Shasta in 1770; in 1910 there were only about 100. The entire
        Shastan stock numbered 844 according to the returns of the 1930
        census, and in 1937, 418 "Pit River" Indians were enumerated, a
        portion of this stock.

        Connections in which they have become noted.- Mount Shasta,
        Shasta County, and a place in the county preserve the name of the
        Shasta Indians.

        Sinkyone. From Sinkyo, the name of the South Fork of Eel River.

        Connections.- The Sinkyone were one of the tribes of the southern

        are divided, but they were closely connected with the Athapascan
        tribes of Oregon immediately to the north.

        returned 121. In 1930 the "Oregon Athapascans," including the
        Tolowa, were reported to number 504.

        Tubatulabal. A Shoshonean word meaning "pine-nut eaters." Also
        called:

        History.- From the specialization of their language, Kroeber
        (1925) inferred that these people had occupied their country for
        a long time but later researches by Whorf (1935) make this less
        certain. The first white person to visit them was Father Garces
        in 1776 and during the next 50 years they were brought in contact
        with the San Buena Ventura Mission, founded in 1782 near Ventura.
        By 1846 white settlers had established ranches in South Fork
        Valley, and in 1857 the Kern River gold rush began in Palagewan
        territory. During 1862 a few Tubatulabal joined the Owens Valley
        Paiute in hostilities against the Whites, and about this time a
        group of Koso Indians settled in the Tubatulabal area,
        intermarrying chiefly with the Kawaiisu, however. In 1863, 35-40
        Tubatulnbal and Palagewan men were massacred near Kernville by
        American soldiers. Between 1865 and 1875 the Tubatulabal began to
        practice agriculture and in 1893 the majority of them and a few
        Palagewan survivors were allotted land in South Fork and Kern
        Valleys.

        Population.- Kroeber (1925) makes an estimate of 1,000
        Tubatulabal for the year 1770 but Voegelin (1938) regards this as
        "probably too high." Henley in 1854 gives a figure of 100 which
        seems to apply to the Tubatulabal and Palagewan Bands, but
        Voegelin points out that it may be necessary to double this on
        account of a band temporarily absent from the country, and the
        same writer estimates that Henley indicates a band of perhaps 50
        which may have been the Bankalachi. A village sit estimate
        obtained by Voegelin (1938) from native informants suggested a
        total about 1855-60 of 228 Tubatulabal, and 65 Palagewan, or 293
        combined. An estimate for 1863 based on the total of adult males
        indicates a population of 220.

             The United States Census of 1910 returned 105 and a field
        census taken by Voegelin in 1832 including all mixtures, 145.

        Vanyume. Name applied by the Mohave; significance unknown, though
        it is probably related to the term Panamint given to the Koso.

        Connections.- The Vanyume belonged to the Shoshonean Division of
        the Uto-Aztecan linguistic stock, their closest connections being
        probably with the Kitanemuk, and secondly with the Serrano.

        Location.- On Mohave River.

        Population.- (See Alliklik.) They are now extinct as a tribe.

        Wailaki. A Wintun word meaning "north language," applied to other
        Wintun groups and to some foreign groups. Also called:

        Kak'-wits, Yuki name, meaning "northern people."

        Connections.- The Wailaki belonged to the Athapascan linguistic
        stock and to the southern California group.

        Location.- On Eel River from the Lassik territory to the Big
        Bend, several affluents on the west side, Kekawaka Creek on the

        Population.- Kroeber (1932) estimates 12,000 Wintun in 1770 and
        about 1,000 in 1910. The census of 1930 returned 512 Wintun,
        Wintu, and Wappo.

        Wiyot. Properly the name of one of the three Wiyot districts but
        extended by most of their neighbors over the whole people. Also
        called:

             Dilwishne, Sinkyone name.
             Humboldt Bay Indians, popular term.
             Sulatelik, used by the Wiyot to designate their language,
        and approaching a tribal designation in its usage.
             Wishosk, probably a misapplication of the Wiyot name for
        their Athapascan neighbors.

        Connections.- In the Powellian classification the Wiyot were
        given an independent position as the Wishoskan stock. Later
        California investigators combined them with the Yurok under the
        narne Ritwan but still later believed that they had established a
        relationship between them and the great Algonquian family of the
        east. This allocation is, however, questioned by other
        ethnologists.

        Location.- On lower Mad River, Humboldt Bay, and lower Eel River.

        Location.- Including the Yahi, the Yana extended from Pit River
        to Rock Creek, and from the edge of the upper Sacramento Valley

        subdivisions, a northern (on the drainage of Montgomery Creek
        into Pit River and that of Cedar Creek, an affluent of Little
        Crow Creek), a central (the entire Cow Creek drainage and Bear
        Creek), and a southern (on Battle, Payne, and Antelope Creeks and

        Population.- Kroeber (1932) estimates 1,500 Yana in 1770
        including the Yahi, and states that there are less than 40 full-
        and mixed-bloods today, all of the Northern and Central
        Divisions. Only 9 appear under the head of Yanan in the census of
        1930.

        Yokuts. The name for "person," or "people," in many of the
        dialects of the group. Also called:

             Mariposan, a name derived from Mariposa County, and applied
        to the stock to which these people were originally assigned by
        Powell.
             Noche, a name used by Garces in 1775-76 (1900).

        Connections.- The Yokuts were originally considered a distinct
        linguistic family but have now been made a part of the large
        Penutian stock.

        Location.- On the entire floor of San Joaquin Valley from the
        mouth of San Joaquin River to the foot of Tehachapi, and the

        The following villages constituted a group in the northern
        portion of Round Valley west of the agency: Chochhanuk,
        Mameshishmo U'wit, Hake, Son, and there were still others whose
        names have been forgotten.

        There was another group in the northern part of Round Valley east
        of the agency and northeast over the hills to include Williams
        Valley: Pomo, in Round Valley, and, in successive order upstream
        in Williams Valley, Mo't-huyup, Kilikot, Lelhaksi, Nonakak,

        Sonkash, Molkus, (all in Round Valley), and other villages east
        of the valley toward the river, whose names and sites are not
        known.

        The names of six subdivisions of the Ta'no'm are known:
        Kichilpitno'm, Kashansichno'm, Pomahanno'm, Mantno'm,
        Hanchhotno'm, and Ulsmolno'm, Probably these corresponded to the

        census of 1910 returned 95, and that of 1930, 177, including the
        Yuki, Coast Yuki, and Huchnom.

        Yuki, Coast; or Ukhotno'm. (See Yuki.) The second name is applied
        to them by the interior Yuki, signifying "ocean people."

        Connections.- The Coast Yuki believe themselves to be an offshoot
        from the Huchnom but linguistic examination seems to place them
        near the Yuki.

        Location.- The Pacific coast from Cleone to a point halfway
        between Rockport and Usal and inland to the divide between the
        coast streams and Eel River.

                                 Villages

        These have not been recorded but the following places were
        probably inhabited:

        On the coast from north to south:

             On-chil-ka or On-chil-em, beyond Rockport.
             Es'im, at Rockport or Hardy Creek.
             Melhom-i'iken (Warren Creek).
             Hisimel-auhkem (the next creek).
             Lil-p'in-kem (De Haven).
             Shipep or Shipoi (Westport).
             K'etim, Chetman Gulch.
             Lilim, Mussel Rock.
             Ok'omet or Shipoi, Kabesilah.
             Methuyak-olselem (the creek north of Ten Mile River).
             Metkuyaki or Metknyakem (the mouth of Ten Mile River and
        also the river).
             Mil-hot-em (Cleone).
             Sus-mel-im, at the mouth of Pudding Crcck.
             Ol-hepech-kem (Noyo River).
             Nehkinmelem (Casper).
             Onp'otilkei (in Sherwood Valley).
             Ukemim (near Willits).

        Population.- Kroeber (1932) estimates that in 1770 and 1850 there
        were 500 Coast Yuki; the census of 1910 reported 15. (See Yuki.)

        Yuma. This tribe extended into the extreme southeastern corner of
        the State along the Colorado River. (See Arizona.)

        Yurok. Signifying "downstream" in the language of the neighboring
        Karok. Also called:

             Kiruhikwak, by the Shasta of Salmon River.
             Weitchpec, a name sometimes locally used, especially in Hupa
        and Karok territory, to which Weichpec is at present the nearest
        Yurok village.

        Connections.- The Yurok were originally regarded as an
        independent stock, later combined with the Wiyot into the Ritwan
        family, and still later identified by Kroeber and Sapir as a part
        of the great Algonquian family of the east. This last
        identification has not, however, met with entire acceptance.

        Location.- On the lower Klamath River and along the coast to the
        north and south of it.

                                   Subdivisions

        Two dialects differing but little from each other may be
        distinguished; one spoken in the southernmost coast section, the
        districts of the Big Lagoon and Trinidad; the other, in the
        remainder of Yurok territory.

Colorado -

 The Indian Tribes of North America by John R. Swanton

        Apache. A number of the Apache bands extended their raids from
        time to time over the territory of what is now Colorado, but only
        one of them, the Jicarilla, may be said to have been permanent
        occupants of any part of the State within the historic period.
        This tribe is considered under the name Jicarilla below; for an
        account of the other Apache tribes except the Lipan, see New
        Mexico. The Lipan are treated under Texas.

        Arapaho. The Arapaho hunted and warred over parts of eastern
        Colorado. (See Wyoming.)

        Bannock. This tribe and the Shoshoni roamed over the extreme
        northwestern corner of the State. (See Idaho.)

        Cheyenne. The same may be said of the Cheyenne as of the Arapaho.
        (See South Dakota.)

        Comanche. Like the Arapaho and Cheyenne, this tribe hunted and
        warred in the eastern parts of the State. (See Texas.)

        Jicarilla. A Mexican Spanish word, meaning "little basket," given
        to the tribe on account of the expertness of Jicarilla women in
        making baskets. Also called:

             Be'-xai, or Pex'-ge, Navaho name.
             Kinya-inde, Mescalero name.
             Keop-tagui, Kiowa name, signifying "mountain Apache."
             Pi'-ke-e-wai-i-ne, Picuris name.
             Tan-nah-shis-en, by Yarrow (1879) and signifying "men of the
        woodland."
             Tashi'ne, Mescalero name.
             Tinde, own name.
             Tu-sa-be', Tesuque name

        Connections - The Jicarilla were one of the so-called Apache
        tribes, all of which belonged to the great Athapascan linguistic
        stock, but with the Lipan (see Texas) constituted a group
        distinct from the Apache proper. (See New Mexico.)

        Location - Within historic times the homes of the Jicarilla have
        been in southeastern Colorado and northern New Mexico, though
        they have ranged into the adjacent parts of Kansas, Oklahoma, and
        Texas.

                               Subdivisions

        Mooney (1928) gives the following:

             Apatsiltlizhihi, who claim the district of Mora, N. Mex.
             Dachizhozhin, original home around the present Jicarilla
        Reservation, N. Mex.
             Golkahin, claiming a former home south of Taos Pueblo, N.
        Mex.
             Ketsilind, claiming a former home south of Taos Pueblo, N.
        Mex.
             Saitinde, claiming the vicinity of present Espanola, N.
        Mex., as their original home.

        History - There is little doubt that the Jicarilla traveled
        southward at no very remote period from among the Athapascan
        tribes in northwestern Canada, very likely by way of the eastern
        flanks of the Rocky Mountains. They were probably among the
        Querechos met by Coronado in 1540-42, the same people known to
        the later Spanish explorers as Vaqueros. They first received
        mention under their own name early in the eighteenth century. In
        1733 a Spanish mission was established for them near Taos, N.
        Mex., but it did not last long, and their relations with the
        Spaniards were generally hostile. In 1853 the governor of New
        Mexico induced 250 of the tribe to settle on the Puerco River,
        but failure to ratify the treaty he had made with them caused
        them to go on the warpath, and they continued hostile until their
        defeat by United States troops in 1854. In 1870 they resided on
        the Maxwell grant in northeastern New Mexico, but the sale of it
        necessitated their removal. In 1872 and again in 1873 attempts
        were made to move them to Fort Stanton, but most of them were
        permitted to go to the Tierra Amarilla, on the northern confines
        of the territory, on a reservation of 900 square miles set aside
        in 1874. Their annuities having been suspended in 1878 on account
        of their refusal to move southward in accordance with an Act of
        Congress of that year, they resorted to thieving. In 1880 thc Act
        of 1878 was repealed, and a new reservation was set aside on the
        Navajo River, to which they were removed. Here they remained
        until 1883, when they were transferred to Fort Stanton. On
        February 11, 1887, however, a reservation was set aside for them
        in the Tierra Amarilla region by Executive Order. They removed to
        this territory and there they have now been allotted land in
        severalty.

        Population - Mooney (1928) estimated that there were about 800
        Jicarilla in 1845. In 1905 they numbered 795; according to the
        Census of 1910, there were 694; the Report of the United States
        Indian Office for 1923 gave 608, and that for 1937, 714.

        Connection in which they have become noted - The name Jicarilla
        is given to mountains and a post village in Lincoln County, N.
        Mex.

        Kiowa. Like the Arapaho, Cheyenne, and Comanche, the Kiowa
        formerly hunted and warred across parts of eastern Colorado.
        (See Oklahoma.)

        Kiowa Apache. This tribe always accompanied the Kiowa. (See
        Oklahoma.)

        Navaho. The Navaho lived just south of the Colorado boundary,
        entering that State only occasionally. (See New Mexico.)

        Pueblos. Most of the Pueblo tribes trace their origin to some
        place in the north and there is no doubt that the ancestors of
        many of them lived in what are now the pueblo and cliff ruins of
        Colorado. In historic times the principal dealings of Colorado
        Indians with the Pueblos have been with the Pueblo of Taos, which
        was once a trading point of importance. Many of its people
        intermarried with the Ute. (See New Mexico.)

        Shoshoni. Together with the Bannock, the Shoshoni roamed over
        the extreme northwestern part of Colorado. (See Idaho.)

        Ute. The Ute formerly occupied the entire central and western
        portions of Colorado. (See Utah.)




        

Connecticut -


        The Indian Tribes of North America by John R. Swanton

        Mahican. The northwestern corner of Litchfield County was
        occupied by the Wawyachtonoc, a tribe of the Mahican Confederacy
        of the upper Hudson, though their main seats were in Columbia and
        Dutchess Counties, N. Y. (See New York.)

        Mohegan. The name means "wolf." They are not to be confused with
        the Mahican. Also called:

                River Indians.
                Seaside People.
                Unkus [Uncas] Indians, from the name of their chief.
                Upland Indians.

        Connections.- The Mohegan belonged to the Algonquian linguistic
        stock and spoke a y-dialect closely related to Pequot.

        Location.- The Mohegan originally occupied most of the upper
        valley of the Thames and its branches. Later they claimed
        authority over some of the Nipmuc and the Connecticut River
        tribes, and in the old Pequot territory. (See also New York.)

                                 Villages

        Ashowat, between Amston and Federal.

        Catantaquck, near the head of Pachaug River.

        Checapscaddock, southeast of the mouth of Shetucket River in the
        town of Preston.

        Thames River.

        Moosup, at the present Moosup in the town of Plainfield.

        Shantuck, on the west side of Thames River just north of Mohegan.

        Showtucket or Shetucket, near Lisbon in the fork of the Shetucket
        and Quinebaug Rivers.

        Wauregan, on the east side of Quinebaug River in the town of
        Plainfield.

        Willimantic, on the site of the present city of Willimantic.

        Yantic, at the present Yantic on Yantic River.

        History.- The Mohegan were probably a branch of the Mahican.
        Originally under Sassacus, chief of the Pequot, they afterward
        became independent and upon the destruction of the Pequot in
        1637, Uncas, the Mohegan chief, became ruler also of the
        remaining Pequot and set up pretensions to territory north and
        west beyond his original borders. At the end of King Philip's
        War, the Mohegan were the only important tribe remaining in
        southern New England, but as the White settlements advanced they
        were reduced progressively both in territory and in numbers. Many
        joined the Scaticook, and in 1788 a still larger body united with
        the Brotherton in New York, where they formed the largest single
        element in the new settlement. The rest continued in their old
        town at Mohegan, where a remnant of mixed-bloods still survives.

        Population.- The number of Mohegan were estimated by Mooney
        (1928) at 2,200 in 1600; in 1643, including the remnant of the
        Pequot and perhaps other tribes, at between 2,000 and 2,500. In
        1705 they numbered 750; in 1774, 206 were reported; in 1804, 84;
        in 1809, 69; in 1825, 300; in 1832, about 360; in 1910, 22.

        Connection in which they have become noted.- The Mohegan became
        celebrated on account of the services rendered the Whites by
        Uncas. Today their name is perpetuated in Mohegan, on Thames
        River, and the name of their chief in Uncasville on the same
        stream. There is a post village of this name in McDowell County,
        W. Va., and a Mohegan Lake in Westchester County, N. Y., but this
        is named after the Mahican.

        Niantic, Western. Regarding the name, see Niantic, Eastern, under
        Rhode Island.

        Connections.- These were the same as for the Eastern Niantic.
        (See Rhode Island.)

        Location.- On the seacoast from Niantic Bay to Connecticut River.

                                Villages

        Niantic or Nehantucket, near the present town of Niantic. There
        was another near Old Lyme.

        History.- Originally the Western Niantic are thought to have
        constituted one tribe with the Eastern Niantic and to have been
        cut apart from them by the Pequot. They were nearly destroyed in
        the Pequot war and at its close (1637) were placed under the
        control of the Mohegan. About 1788 many joined the Brotherton
        Indians. A small village of Niantic was reported as existing near
        Danbury in 1809, but this perhaps contained remnants of the
        tribes of western Connecticut, although Speck (1928) found
        several Indians of mixed Niantic-Mohegan descent living with the
        Mohegan remnant, descendants of a pure-blood Niantic woman from
        the mouth of Niantic River.

        Population. The Western Niantic population was estimated by
        Mooney (1928) at 600 in 1600; there were about 100 in 1638; 85 in
        1761.

        Connection in which they have become noted.- The name of the
        Western Niantic is perpetuated in Niantic village, Niantic River,
        and Niantic Bay, in New London County. Post villages in Macon
        County, Ill., and Montgomery County, Pa., bear the name Niantic.

        Nipmuc. Some bands of this tribe extended into the northeastern
        part of the State. (See Massachusetts.)

        Pequot. The name means, according to Trumbull (1818),
        "destroyers." Also called:

                Sickenames, in a Dutch deed quoted by Ruttenber (1872).

        Connections.- The Pequot belonged to the Algonquian linguistic
        stock, and spoke a y-dialect closely related to Mohegan.

        Location.- The Pequot occupied the coast of New London County
        from Niantic River nearly to the Rhode Island State line. Until
        driven out by the Narraganset, they extended into Rhode Island as
        far as Wecapaug River. (See also Rhode Island.)

                                 Villages

        Asupsuck, in the interior of the town of Stonington.

        Aukumbumsk or Awcumbuck, in the center of the Pequot country near
        Gales Ferry.

        Aushpook, at Stonington.

        Cosattuck, probably near Stonington.

        Cuppanaugunnit, probably in New London County.

        Mangunckakuck, probably on Thames River below Mohegan.

        Maushantuxet, at Ledyard.

        Mystlc, near West Mystic on the west side of Mystic River.

        Monhunganuck, near Beach Pond in the town of Voluntonn.

        Nameaug, near New London.

        Noank, at the present place of that name.

        Oneco, at the place of that name in the town of Sterling.

        Paupattokshick, on the lower course of Thames River.

        Pawcatuck, probably on the river of the same name, Washington
        County, R. I.

        Pequotauk, near New London.

        Poquonock, inland from Popuonock Bridge.

        Sauquonckackock, on the west side of Thames River below Mohegan.

        Shenecosset, near Midway in the town of Groton.

        Tatuppequauog, on the Thames River below Mohegan.

        Weinshauks, near Groton.

        Wequetequock, on the east side of the river of the same name.

        History.- The Pequot and the Mohegan arc supposed to have been
        invaders from the direction of Hudson River. At the period of
        first White contact, the Pequot were war-like and greatly dreaded
        by their neighbors. They and the Mohegan were jointly ruled by
        Sassacus until the revolt of Uncas, the Mohegan chief. (See
        Mohegan.) About 1635 the Narraganset drove them from a corner of
        the present Rhode Island which they had previously held, and 2
        years later the murder of a trader who had treated some Indians
        harshly involved the Pequot in war with the Whites. At that time
        their chief controlled 26 subordinate chiefs, claimed authority
        over all Connecticut east of Connecticut River, and on the coast
        as far west as New Haven or Guilford, as well as all of Long
        Island except the extreme western end. Through the influence of
        Roger Williams, the English secured the assistance or neutrality
        of the surrounding tribes. Next they surprised and destroyed the
        principal Pequot fort near Mystic River along with 600 Indians of
        all ages and both sexes, and this disaster crippled the tribe so
        much that, after a few desperate attempts at further resistance,
        they determined to separate into small parties and abandon the
        country (1637). Sassacus and a considerable body of followers
        were intercepted near Fairfield while trying to escape to the
        Mohawk and almost all were killed or captured. Those who
        surrendered were divided among the Mohegan, Narraganset, and
        Niantic, and their territory passed under the authority of Uncas.
        Their Indian overlords treated them so harshly, however, that
        they were taken out of their hands by the colonists in 1655 and
        settled in two villages near Mystic River, where some of their
        descendants still live. Numbers removed to other places- Long
        Island, New Haven, the Nipmuc country, and elsewhere- while many
        were kept as slaves among the English in New England or sent to
        the West Indies.

        Population.- The Pequot population was estimated by Mooney (1928)
        at 2,200 in 1600; in 1637, immediately after the Pequot war,
        there were said to be 1,950, but the figure is probably too high.
        In 1674 the Pequot in their old territory numbered about 1,500;
        in 1762, 140. In 1832 there were said to be about 40 mixed-
        bloods, but the census of 1910 gave 66, of whom 49 were in
        Connecticut and 17 in Massachusetts.

        Connection in which they have become noted.- The Pequot are
        remembered principally on account of the bitter and, to them,
        disastrous war related above. The name is borne by a post village
        in Crow Wing County, Minn.

        Wappinger. The valley of Connecticut River was the home of a
        number of bands which might be called Mattabesec after the name
        of the most important of them, and this in turn was a part of the
        Wappinger. (See New York.)

        Delaware. The Unalachtigo division of the Delaware occupied all
        of the northern parts of this State when it was first visited by
        Europeans. (See New Jersey.)

        Nanticoke. Bodies of Indians classed under this general heading
        extended into the southern and western sections. Unalachtigo and
        Nanticoke are two forms of the same word though, as
        differentiated, they have been applied to distinct tribes. (See
        Maryland.)
