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: Yuma (Quechan) and Mojave had distinctive artifact styles. The pottery doll and small effigy vessel are Mojave, and probably the cradleboard as well.
