Yosemite to review park’s American Indian history

Fresno, California (AP) 5-09

Yosemite National Park will review its exhibits and historical records to make sure that local tribes’ ancestral ties to the land are accurately reflected.

Acting Superintendent Dave Uberuaga requested the review of the park’s books, brochures and a replica village built near the park’s roaring falls last month.

It comes after criticism from the Mono Lake Paiutes who dispute how the park’s history has been portrayed. They say they were the park’s first stewards and the Southern Sierra Miwok – highlighted in many of the visitor information displays– play down the Paiute role in the area.

The review will be carried out by park managers, ethnohistorians and National Park Service experts who do not work at Yosemite.
