Notes:
Illustrated in Fowler and Matley (1979) (Figure 63a) with the following remarks: "Drums are reported for those Numic peoples who early adopted horses and other Plains elements, ie. the Ute, and the Northern and Eastern Shoshoni. Those who did not adopt horses, such as the Southern Paiute, the Gosiute, and the Western Shoshoni, apparently lacked drums during the aboriginal period (Stewart, 1942:295; Steward, 1943:278). Some Northern Paiute groups, however, may have acquired drums from Plateau groups to the north (Kelly, 1932:195)." p. 72

Turtle shell.
"There are ten bowls made from the top shell of the desert tortoise (Testodo agassizii). All the bowls have been scraped to remove the inside structural formations (Figure 71a) ...The desert tortoise is found in the lower, warm Mohavian deserts of extreme southwestern Utah, southern Nevada, and southeastern California (Connolly and Eckert, 1969). Hence the specimens collected from the Kaibab Southern Paiute and from the Gosiute were probably obtained by them in trade from other groups. Provenience: Kaibab Southern Paiute, USNM 11907, 14471, 14472, 14473, 14474, 14475. Moapa Southern Paiute: USNM 14465; Deep Creek Gosiute: USNM 14477, 14478, 14481.USNM 14475 is illustrated by Hough (1922, pl. 9, fig. 3)." Fowler and Matley (1979) p. 76
