Mojave Desert Indians - Historic Desert Indian Territories Map: Mojave Indians

Mojave Indian Ethnography & Ethnohistory


Trade, Exchange, Storage

The Mojaves traded regularly with the Serranos and the Chumash, with whom they were on terms of special amity, and probably also on occasion with the Cahuilla, especially in the early 1850s. They also traded with the Chemehuevi, with whom they were sometimes friendly and sometimes at odds. They were not as interested in trade as in travel for the sake of travel-seeing other lands and visiting people.

The Mojaves stored their corn in huge granaries woven of unstripped arrowweed branches. Corn was dried before being stored.
