Mewuk (Miwok) women. California, ca 1900. - Miwok lived in small bands without a central political authority before contact with whites in 1769. They domesticated dogs and cultivated tobacco, but were otherwise hunter-gatherers. Miwok mythology tends to be similar to those of other tribes of Northern California. Miwok had totem animals, identified with one of two moieties, which were in turn associated with land and water. Totem animals were not ancestors of humans, but rather predecessors.
