Yokuts Notebook


Genealogical information was often recorded to indicate relationships between people and explore the kinship structures of various cultures. Here, these relationships are indicated graphically in a kinship diagram, while the traditional names of individuals are recorded to the right. These data are from the Wobonuch, a Foothill Yokuts group.
