Here is what she has to say:

"Various scholars, including ethnographers, linguists, and
archaeologists, have published maps and descriptions of the Indian tribes in California.  However, if the historic data are re-examined
using contemporary tools and data sets, there is still much to be
learned. Anne McTavish will compare a variety of maps related to the
Winnemem Wintu boundaries researched as part of her MA thesis at San
Francisco State University."

(she also used Kroeber's text. UCB has a building named after him.
quiz: why and why do native americans still wonder and write about
what he did?)
