Mojave Indian Ethnography & Ethnohistory


Material Culture, Technology

Structures
Mojave houses were large and usually rectangular, and covered with a thatch of arrowweed and then sand, but it is doubtful that this kind of structure was built by the Mojave outside the Colorado River area. At most, they may have constructed temporary structures for themselves when staying away for any period of time.

The Mojave practiced flood plain agriculture along the Colorado River, planting their crops of corn, beans, pumpkins, cantalopes in May or June after the annual floods, and returning from hunting and gathering to harvest their crops. By the eighteenth century they were growing wheat.
