Mojave Desert Indians -
Historic Desert Indian Territories Map:
The Yokuts occupy the greater part of the San Joaquin valley and the lower foothills of the Sierra to the
east. (For type, see Kroeber, 1925, pl. 32 b,e.) They are subdivided into tribes, each numbering two to
three hundred persons, and having a tribal name, dialect, and definite territory. The names are usually
meaningless and end either in amni or a derivative of this or in chi. Neither the Yokuts nor their neighbors
should be called "Mariposans".
