AbstractThis document was compiled during field trips made during the years 1925-1930, as well as from the field notes of Mrs. A. Rogers (in reference to the Chukchansi), and other published materials on the Yokuts and Western Mono. The material is well organized and precise in its presentation of Yokut and Western Mono ethnography. A major point of emphasis in this document is on special ceremonies, shamans, curing and the obtaining of shamanistic powers.
