Thank you! This is very useful information and direction. Have Professor Dias and/or Professor Abbruzzese published their studies and papers? Might they be available?
Was the Timbisha Shoshone experience with the Spanish similar to that of the Cauilla? The Cauilla were inland enough so that at least in the beginning, they were left alone. It was not until the esistencia in Redlands was built did they have regular contact. The Timbisha Shoshone were even more remote.
No, I am not taking an anthology class, though I should at some point. I wish Cal State Fullerton of even Fullerton College offered the kind of classes that are offered in the Inland Empire.
I am just very interested in the culture of the people who lived in the areas I like to visit as well as geology. Biology and history. It just makes it more interesting to look at a place and know who used it, to look a an insect and know what it is doing. It is my own constant curiosity about everything I see. I am no expert, nor will I be one. It is just fun I also like to collect books and items of interest so I can refer to them.
