Yosemite Valley Plan, A Threat To Indian Culture

Cultural Genocide

Yosemite Mono Lake Paiutes

This is a slide show documenting the Yosemite Mono Lake Paiutes of Yosemite National Park. This slide show contains historical photos of Yosemite National Park and explains the Paiute language of this National Park. This segment includes the 1891 Petition to Congress asking for compensation for the stolen lands of Yosemite National Park. Congress threw this Petition in the trash and was never seen again until recently. The Petition was signed by the Yosemite Indians and the Mono Lake Paiutes. This segment documents the book called the First Discovery of Yosemite written by Lafayette Bunnell. Lafayette Bunnell documented the meeting of Paiute Chief Tenaya and his Paiute heritage. This segment documents the Owens Valley Paiute Creation Story which states Owahnee is a Paiute word in origin. In order to gain the full potential of this slide show, I would suggest you watch it in it numerical order.

This is a slide show documenting the Yosemite Mono Lake Paiutes of Yosemite National Park.This slide show documents the name Tenaya and its Paiute meaning. This segment documents the Yosemite National Parks version of the Native American Indian History of the Park as Miwok, yet historical documents prove it is Paiute. The words Tisayac, Pohono, the Yosemite Pate Valley rock writings, the baskets, all denote Uto Aztecan Paiute. Included are the numbered series of Eadweard Muybridge which he titled specifically “The Paiute Chiefs Lodge.” Yet the Yosemite National Park Service has cropped off the Muybridge title of Paiute Chiefs Lodge Historical photo. Muybridge Historical photo of the “Bucks on a Log is really titled Paiute Bucks. Muybridge photographed the famous artist Albert Bierstadt painting the Paiutes in Yosemite.
Who ever is responsible the Indian History in Yosemite National Park is in error based on historical documents.

This is a slide show documenting the Yosemite Mono Lake Paiutes of Yosemite National Park. This segment documents the Yosemite National Parks Service definition of Ahwahnee is the “Place of the Gaping Mouth,” which is false! Refer to the Paiute Language and you can see “Awaago is the word for gaping mouth.” Note the Yosemite National Park Service web site states First contact with the Yosemite Indians were Southern Sierra Miwok. This contradicts Lafayette Bunnels version of First Discovery of Yosemite which he stated Major James Savage could speak Miwok, but could not understand Chief Tenaya since Tenaya spoke a Pah Ute Jargon and created the Paiute Colony of Ahwahnee. This segment documents the Yosemite National Park Service uses Ancestral Paiute photo and implies them as Miwoks. This segment documents Yosemite National Parks Indian recreated village dated 1870, yet its titled Miwok with Miwok language. Remember Eadweard Muybridge photographed the village and documented it as Paiute dated 1870.

This is a slide show documenting the Yosemite Mono Lake Paiutes of Yosemite National Park. This is a slide show documenting the Yosemite Mono Lake Paiutes of Yosemite National Park. This segment documents Tom Hudgins original photo was documented as a “Mono Indian,” yet today in Yosemite National Park, Tom is documented as a Miwok. Yosemite National Park Service has falsely changed his Indian ancestry. “Why?” We document the Bill Family as full Blood Paiute, We document Maggie Tooboose as a Full blood Paiute,
Yet the Yosemite National Park Service seems to have its own agenda for promoting the Miwoks as the original Indians of Yosemite. Why is the National Park Service creating and promoting a mistruth to the public in our National Park?

This is a slide show documenting the Yosemite Mono Lake Paiutes of Yosemite National Park and their connection to the Fitzwater 1962 sewer plant built on top of an ancient Paiute Cemetery. In 1962 Fitzwater excavated this area for a sewer plant for Yosemite National Park. Fitzwater excavated 23 full burial bundles and now there is no record or location of these Native American Remains. It seems the National Park Service has no location of the 23 full burial bundles and can not seem to locate them. However the Yosemite National Park Service has allowed the non profit Southern Sierra Miwoks to claim the Culturally Unidentified items from this excavation. The Inventory sheets of Native American Indian remains does state from the National Park Service Officials these remains and items could not be Miwok since they were deposited prior to the Miwoks arrival to the area

This is a slide show documenting the Yosemite Mono Lake Paiutes of Yosemite National Park. The declaration of the Yosemite National Park Service relating to the 1962 El Portal Fitzwater Excavation of a sewer plant constructed over an ancient Uto Aztecan Paiute burial cemetery. In this declaration under oath the Yosemite National Park Service states the Native American Indian remains could not be Miwok.

This is a slide show documenting the Yosemite Mono Lake Paiute basket makers of Yosemite National Park. This segment documents the Paiute name for El Captain and Tisayac Half Dome and the Three Brothers.

This is a slide show documenting the Yosemite Mono Lake Paiutes of Yosemite National Park. Note all historical Paiutes.
Remember if the Uto Aztecan Paiutes arrived in the Great Basin area 10,000 years ago, that basin was an inland sea. if an Indian was to get around that sea, they would have used the Mountain passes you now call the John Muir trails. Remember Lee Vining Mono Lake is 14 miles from the gates of Yosemite National Park. Now if the Paiutes lived around Mono Lake, dont you think they were also in Pate Valley, Paiute Mountain, Paiute Pass, Yosemite Valley, El Portal, Hetch Hetchy, Mt Tom, Little Yosemite Sequoia Kings Canyon! Somethings wrong with the Indian historical facts as documented by Yosemite National Park!
