the Pueblos, the fine art was poor,and relics found in the mounds do not indicate in their makers agrade of culture above that of the Indian tribes near by. Thearchaeology of the Pacific coast, from the Aleutian Islands, iswritten in shell-heaps, village sites, caves, and burial-places (Dall,Harlan I. Smith, Schumacher).
