View from Native California: Lifeways of California's Indigenous People

http://www4.hmc.edu:8001/Humanities/Indian/ca/intro.htm

Rating: 1, Awesome!

Description: This history by Tad Beckman, Harvey Mudd College, Claremont, describes the indigenous people of California and how they adapted to the state's widely diverse environmental regions. Indians developed small communities that were largely sedentary and cooperative societies, woven intimately into micro ecological niches. The terrain available in California was so varied that even larger tribal territories tended to split up into tribelet domains in which small collections of communities developed cultural traditions that suited their own particular environments. In all there were more than one hundred different tribes and tribelets in California with thoroughly developed, distinctive languages and cultural traditions. Standard 4.2.1

Comments: The narrative has some high level vocabulary but is written with the lay reader in mind. Rich visual images are evoked and it is well to have a map of California nearby.
