SERRANO ETHNOGRAPHY & ETHNOHISTORY

Sources

Major sources on the ethnography of the Serrano include Lowell John Bean and Charles Smith's paper, "Serrano," in the Handbook of North American Indians, V. 8 in the Handbook of North American Indians, Vol. 8, California 1978; A. L. Kroeber's Handbook of the Indians of California 1925; William Duncan Strong's Aboriginal Society in Southern California 1929; Bean and Vane's "Persistence and Power: A Study of Native American Peoples in the Sonoran Desert and the Devers-Palo Verde High Voltage Transmission Line 1978"; Bean and Vane's "Native American Places in the San Bernardino Forest, San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, California" 1981; Ruth Benedict's A Brief Sketch of Serrano Culture 1924, and Serrano Tales 1926; Philip Drucker's Culture Element Distributions V: Southern California 1937; Edward W. Gifford's "Clans and Moieties in Southern California" 1918; the J. P. Harrington notes; and the C. Hart Merriam notes. The foregoing include some ethnohistory. Secondary sources on ethnohistory are Beattie and Beattie's Heritage of the Valley: San Bernardino's First Century (1951) and Paulina La Fuze's Saga of the San Bernardinos 1971. Some information given here is drawn from recent research by CSRI and others in the records of San Gabriel Mission. Some is also drawn from Bean's notes on his ethnographic research at Morongo Indian Reservation in the late 1950s and 1960s, which include information drawn from Sarah Martin and other knowledgeable Serranos.
