Miwok Material Culture: Indian Life of the Yosemite Region (1933) by S. A. Barrett and E. W. Gifford


SHELTER

After food, house materials perhaps reflect the physical environment more than any other feature of Miwok material culture. Miwok structures were of several kinds: (1) the conical dwelling house wholly above the ground, (2) the sun shelter, (3) the semi-subterranean conical dwelling house, (4) the semi-subterranean assembly house, (5) the sudatory or sweat-house, (6) the ceremonial circular structure of brush, (7) the ceremonial rectangular structure of brush, (8) the grinding booth, (9) the acorn granary, and (10) the blind of green boughs from which to shoot birds and mammals.
