Chapter History

The Kawaiisu Chapter was organized 13 October 1979 at Lake Isabella, California. There were 22 charter members; Mrs. Dorothy Kirkwood was Organizing Regent.

The habitat of the Kawaiisu Indians was the high desert of the Piute Mountains of the Sierra Nevada Range.  The Kawaiisu belonged to the Chemehuevi Division of Indians, and like their ancestors, subsisted on small animals and various seeds.  As the Kawaiisu migrated farther west and into the mountains, they found food and water more plentiful.  They, like their northern neighbors (Tubatulabal) became known as the "pine nut eaters."  The Kawaiisu are known for their beautiful baskets, made from willows and cottonwoods that grew by the mountain streams.
