The Bibliography of the Indians of San Diego County is intended to provide information on the American Indian groups indigenous to the area that is now San Diego County. All aspects of history and culture of the Kumeyaay, Diegueno, Ipai, Tipai, Luiseno and Cupeno Indians are covered, including language and linguistics, arts, agriculture, hunting, religion, mythology, music, political and social structures, dwellings, clothing, and medicinal practices. Materials included in this work are books (or chapters from books), theses and dissertations, journal articles, conference papers, Smithsonian Institution reports, museum publications, and select university press, newspaper and government publications. A section on archival materials is included to guide researchers to major collections covering these tribal groups. Sources of manuscripts and unpublished materials available in special collections of libraries and archives are also included, as well as some materials on the languages and linguistics of the San Diego tribes. Key research articles are reprinted, as well as maps and illustrations. This unique guide fills the void in the research literature for the tribes covered.
Both the entries and the articles are well written and informative. This bibliography is recommended for collections in anthropology, Native American studies, and western U.S. history. American Reference Books Annual ...a useful book... European Review Of Native American Studies
