Indian Culture
(Owens Valley Paiute, Tubatulabal, Western Mono, Yokuts)


Trade

Owens Valley people traded with the Western Mono and Tubatulabal and occasionally went as far as the Yokuts. They carried, according to their own accounts, pinenuts, larvae of flies (Ephydra hians Say.) breeding in the salt lake, caterpillars (Coloradia pandora Blake), from the mountains, baskets, red and white paint, and salt. To this list, the western people add tanned deerskins. In exchange they received shell bead money, acorns, manzanita and sow berries, and elderberries, according to their own accounts, while according to the western people they also received baskets and rabbit skin blankets. (Steward, 1933:259-260; Gayton, 1930:59.) The more important trans-Sierran routes will be found in Steward, 1933, map 2, and described on pp. 329-330. This includes trails passing through the present Sequoia National Park.
