Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
Arkush discusses trade among the Yokuts using ethnographic,
historic, and some archaeological data. Arkush believes Yokuts traders and villages
(through Yokuts villages hosting trade fairs/mouning ceremonies/feasts) introduced many
elements of Spanish and Mexican material culture to other tribes east of their territory
such as glass trade beads and horses. Arkush also discusses some of the ways the Yokuts
managed to stay independent of the Spanish and Mexican authorities through changing their
settlement practices and through guerilla warfare tactics. Arkush also describes in some
detail the impact of the horse on the Yokuts. The Yokuts became known as 'Horsethief
Indians' and traded, ate, and kept large herds as status symbols.
