Description

The Chemehuevi are closely allied linguistically to the Paiute of southern Nevada, from which region they undoubtedly came in the not distant past. In the historical period they have held the eastern half of San Bernardino county and the eastern end of Riverside. On Colorado river they held the lowlands on both sides between Needles and Bill Williams fork, and a group is still resident there in Chemehuevi valley. Those who settled in the valley (which apparently was subsequent to 1776, because in that year the diary of his journey across the desert west of the river) became agriculturists like the Mohave.
