Settlements

Fig. 10: Wiyot towns and territory.

The Wiyot towns are known only in part.  For the plurality the Yurok names are recorded with more certainty than the proper Wiyot designations.  On the Eel River section information is particularly scant; most of the entries in Figure 10 may be only place names.  Mad River is also likely to have been settled farther up than Osok; and it is not clear whether Kumaidada was a settlement or an uninhabited spot. *

[* Footnote:  Loud, Ethnogeography and Archaeology of the Wiyot Territory, 1918 (see bibliography), gives a map with nearly 200 sites, 32 of them the principal settlements in 1850: 10 on Mad River, 14 on Humboldt Bay, 8 on Eel River.  A number of these identify with the sites in Figure 10, but in most cases under different names (pp. 258-272, 286-296).]
