NOTE: This listing of resources dealing with the Native Peoples of California was compliled by Chuck Smith, anthropology instructor, for the use of his students in both Cabrillo College's and Hartnell College's anthropology class "Native Peoples of California." The listings were selected on the basis of their usefulness in helping students carry out research and are not meant to be definitive nor complete.
NOTE TO STUDENTS: If you need help in finding any of the books listed, please contact me or one of the schools' helpful reference librarians.
