Yosemite California Native Indian Mother/Baby Basket Ahwahneechee? Watkins Photo
Hello and thank you for coming to the Old Pacific Peak Inn!

Still going through this stereoview collection we have obtained, please take a look at our other sales. Up for offer is this stereoview card photographed by C.E Watkins, the image shows a precious female and her baby in a woven basket cradle. Though we are not experts, we are almost certain she is Ahwahneechee Indian due to the area the photo was taken (Mariposa County), the dress she is wearing and the basket in the background. The following is a copy and paste from Wiki...
The Ahwahnechee (also known as Ahwahnees and Ahwahneechee) are a Native American people who traditionally lived in the Yosemite Valley. They are related to the Northern Paiute and Mono tribes. The Ahwahnechee people's heritage can be found all over Yosemite National Park.
The Ahwahnechee lived in Yosemite Valley for centuries. European-American contact began after 1833. In 1851, during the Mariposa War, California State Militia troops of the Mariposa Battalion burned Ahwahnechee villages and took their food stores. In 1852, a Mariposa expedition of US Federal troops heard a report that Ahwahnechee Indians killed two European-American miners at Bridalveil Meadows. The troops executed five Ahwahnechee men.
Chief Tenaya (d. 1853) was a leader in Yosemite Valley. His father was Ahwahnechee. He led his band away from Yosemite to settle with Paiutes in Eastern California. Tenaya has descendants living today.
The official canon says that the Ahwahnechee of Yosemite "became extinct" as a people in the 19th century; however, the US Federal government has evicted Yosemite Native people from the park in 1851, 1906, 1929, and 1969.
Jay Johnson, an Ahwahnechee leader in the Mariposa Indian Council, hopes to get federal reocognition for Yosemite Indians.
