The Inland Chumash Research Project (ICRP,) conducted by UCLA in the 1970s, was spearheaded by C. William Clewlow, Jr. Although the focus and nature of Chumash studies have changed dramatically in the intervening years, many of the questions concerning inland Chumash populations posed in the 1970s continue to interest scholars today. Selected examples of current research into the inland Chumash are brie y examined and compared to the ndings of the ICRP. This comparison shows that ICRP data still have a signi cant contribution to make to our understanding of Chumash economic and settlement systems.
