Money



It is possible that some Yokuts or Owens Valley Paiute money will find its way to a museum collection. This, among the Yokuts, will generally be strings of shell discs, measured, as described by Kroeber, 1925:498, around the hand, or possibly cylinders from the columellae of univalves or from clams.

As all these shells originated on the coast, only the discs seem to have reached Owens Valley, where the measure of money was a somewhat similar turn around the. hand. (Steward, 1933:258.)
