Mojave Desert Indians -
Historic Desert Indian Territories Map:
The Western Mono territory comprises the western slope of the Sierra from the summit of the watershed to the
lower country where they adjoined the foothill Yokuts, and between the Fresno and Tule Rivers. (For type, see
Gayton, 1929-a, plates) The northern side of the Kaweah River was occupied by the Waksachi band, the southern
side, by the Balwisha (Patwisha) band. Most of the season was naturally spent in the lower hills, as the
high Sierra are accessible only in the summer.
