Death Valley History - Desert Indians:
Prehistoric Cultures in the Death Valley Region

Shoshonean Period, 1200 A.D.–Euro-American Contact

The Shoshonean period clearly anticipates the historic Native Americans with evidence of bow and arrow hunting, exploitation of plant resources using milling stones, and use of circular houses. The Anasazi influence faded after A.D. 1200 as a result of changes in climatic conditions, population movements, settlement patterns, social organization, and trade alignments.

This northern Mojave assemblage extended from Owens Valley on the west to the Valley of Fire on the east, and is represented by sites in the Panamint Valley, a variety of sites in Death Valley, the China Ranch site, and in the Amargosa Valley.
