Example text

The men hunted with bows and arrows, mainly deer, but occasionally bison, rabbits, and birds. When needed, they supplemented their diet with lizards and snakes. The Coahuiltecans also used nets for fishing. The abundant food was often stored in baskets. The large amounts of food and temperate climate made the area an ideal place to live, except for attacks from warring nomadic people, such as the Comanche. When the Spanish came, the Coahuiltecans aligned with them for protection from the Comanche, but as with other native groups, many died from smallpox.

After an area’s resources were exhausted, the people in the village found a new location and started building again, usually in the summer months. The women grew food—corn, squash, beans, and sunflowers—outside the village walls. Occasionally, children and elderly men helped with the farming. The first corn was harvested in late summer for the Green Corn Festival, a type of thanksgiving celebrated by the Five Nations people. The men dug storage pits, lining them with bark and grass. More sheets of bark covered food kept in the storage pits.

An anthropologist, T. T. Waterman, came to see Ishi. Waterman knew some Yana words, a different dialect from the same language fam- ily. When Ishi recognized some of the words, Waterman brought Ishi to the University of California Museum of Anthropology. He arranged for a man of the Yana band to help interpret. It was against Yahi custom to tell your name, so the anthropologists named him Ishi, which means “man” in Yana. Ishi lived in the museum. He was recorded telling stories and singing songs so that his language could be preserved.
