Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This is a study of the methods and techniques of
pottery-making by the Yokuts and Western Mono Indians of California, which are treated as
being essentially identical in nature within these two groups. The information in this
paper was obtained by the writer during a field trip made for the Department of
Anthropology, University of California, during the years 1925-1927. In addition tot the
data collected on this field trip, the author has also incorporated information on the
stylistic differentiation of Yokuts and Western Mono pottery as obtained from thirty-four
museum specimens. In general, this document deals with methods of pottery making (coiling
and shaping), methods of making clay pipes, shapes and uses of wares, and the distribution
of pottery-making in the San Joaquin valley. The author of this article, Anna H. Gayton,
was a professional anthropologist on the staff of the University of California.
