This May 1, 1870, article was read originally before the Essex Institute on February 21, 1870. Chever's five years amongst the California Indians and his familiarity with the language of the tribes provided him with a sympathetic insight into the lives of the California Indians who had been demoralized by contact with the Whites. The Indians described were the Sesum, Hocktem, Yubum, Hololipi, Willem and Tankum who inhabited the valley of Northern California between the Sierra Nevada and the Coastal Range.
