Abstract

Archaeological data recovered from Wikalokal, a site in southeast San Diego County, is combined with Kumeyaay ethnohistoric data to investigate native subsistence stress adaptation. Archaeological data provide evidence for late-prehistoric foraging practice shifts toward greater emphasis on gathering and less emphasis on large-game hunting and an associated increase in storage. Ethnohistoric data suggest extensive residential mobility and kin-based resource sharing over a broad range of ecological zones.
