According to additional information provided on 10/2011 by Ken Hedges, Emeritus Curator of California Collections, San Diego Museum of Man and a member of the E.H. Davis Project Scholar Advisory Committee: The name of this man is generally spelled Lucario Cuevish. He was a major consultant for Constance DuBois in her studies of Luiseño religion. I have never seen the name rendered as ‘Chavez.’ See also 86:15900-974 and OP 15362-981 through 988 for other photos of the same man.
