Riassunto: Richly Embellished with historic photos and innovative digital maps, El Capitan is Southern California regional history at its best. Based upon extensive archival research, the study blends the dynamic social history of Native people with the changing winds of federal Indian policy. El Capitan is framed within the larger story of legal dispossession and cultural adaptation of Southern California s Mission Indians under Spanish, Mexican and American rule. Challenging stereotypes, the book traces the actions of strong-willed and capable Native leaders (aka captains) who defended boundaries and resources with the support of friends of the Indian and the federal guardian. An intense conflict over water rights culminates in the removal of the Capitan Grande people from their trust land in order to construct the El Capitan dam and reservoir. Defining terms of their capitulation, the Capitan Grande people insist on being relocated as communities. Out of the geopolitical maelstrom of the Depression era came the birth of two new reservations in San Diego County: Barona and Viejas.

Above all, this is a story of Native survival in place. The Name El Capitan is an embodiment of the history, social principles, and world view of Indian people on the Southern California landscape.

Review: The story of the seizure of El Capitan from the Capitan Grande Indians is long overdue. How a politically weak community made the best of a tragic situation is an inspiration that echoes into the present day. Dr. Thorne s study of the topic provides a range insight beyond the legal doctrines and into personal, political and economic dimensions of Indian existence in the early 20th century. --Michael Connolly Miskwish, Kumeyaay Historian

This is a compelling book about one of the many Indian reservations in Southern California tells what the California Indians face in dealing with the Federal Government. --Lowell Bean, Anthropologist

This is a story of a people and their persistence that needs to be told and understood. Thorne has provided a well-researched and powerful narrative. --Richard L. Carrico, Ethnohistorian

American Indians have been unburying their histories and cultures throughout Indian country over the past fifty or so years. In California, this development has occurred mainly in the past twenty years. There are many roots of this rebirth, but one stands out: the creation of the Malki Museum and its publishing arm in the 1960s by two Cahuilla women, Jane Penn and Katherine Siva Saubel. A decade later, George Harwood Phillips, a non-Indian University of Colorado historian, published Chiefs and Challengers (1975), which argued against the then-prevalent view of California Indians passivity in the face of Spanish, Mexican, and American colonization. In recent years, Native and non-Native scholars have increasingly cooperated in showing people s active responses to their changing worlds. Tanis C. Thorne s new book is a remarkable example of this. El Capitan focuses on the Ipai and Tipai bands (also known as Diegueño or Kumeyaay) living east of San Diego, where the Capitan Grande Reservation was established in the 1870s. Thorne starts with the basics: the land and the people, then the creation of the reservation. The federal government wavered between reserving the land chosen by the Capitan Grande people and giving into opposition from local landowners. By the early 1900s, water became an important issue. To accommodate a water project for San Diego s growth, Capitan Grande s population dispersed to two newly created reservations in the 1930s.Thorne s main argument concerns the centrality of captains in native politics and culture (p. 3). Captains are the elected or otherwise recognized leaders of each band (group) of California Indians. Thorne demonstrates that even captains who opposed each other could sometimes influence government decisions to their people s benefit, as happened in the 1930s. With this thesis, Thorne furthers the work of Native and non-Native scholars in refining the idea of agency in California Indian history. Thorne s research and presentation are exemplary. She has gathered the stories of families and individuals, villages and reservations, and Bureau of Indian Affairs officials and Indian reformers from oral inter-views, archives, newspapers, and seemingly every relevant published book and article, creating a richly detailed history of the captains choices and their impacts on today s post-casino world. Yet Thorne departs from more typical scholarly works in a number of ways that make the book quite readable. For instance, she scatters many nicely reproduced photographs and detailed maps throughout the chapters and includes three photo essays, created by Heather Ponchetti Daly, that depict the two reservations. El Capitan is a necessity for anyone wanting a deep understanding of California Indian history and culture. It also serves as a model for combining traditional Native knowledge and traditional historical research into an accessible written and visual work. --Emily Rader, El Camino College
