IPTC INFO
CaptionHomes were built of a willow frame covered with branches. They were designed to last for one season and only the willow frame might be reused when the tribe returned to the area for the next harvest. Sweat houses were usually built by excavating an area near the bank of a stream. They had low ceilings and a door so small that the men had to crawl into the sweathouse. They were used by men only for the purposes of cleanliness and had some religious significance. The Ohlone boys and men wore no clothes in the summer and used capes or robes in the winter. They also wore shell necklaces earrings and nose rings. Their hair was braided or tied on the top of their head with a buckskin thong. The girls and women wore aprons with a different design on the front and back. When it was cold they wore capes tied under the chin made of rabbit or deer. They wore shell and feather necklaces and had tattoos of lines and dots on their faces and their hair was tied on top of their head with a buckskin thong. Both men and women plastered themselves in mud for warmth and had animal skins for blankets. ___________ This reproduction can be seen in the Mission Dolores Graveyard
