ABSTRACT
This article examines the relationship between Native Californians and archaeologists in their practice of ethnographic analogy of the tribal histories in California. By the 1980s and early 1900s, Indians were resentful about the practice of processual archaeology where archaeologists use ethnographic information to interpret materials found in a archaeological record. The desecration of Indian cemeteries and sacred sites also fostered considerable resentment.
