The upshot of these last papers has been to double Kroeber's estimates in the areas under consideration.
I have accepted Kroeber's line because it follows the drainage pattern.
The fact that the estimates run so high tends to bear out Cook's contention that the Kroeber estimates should be raised.
The Yurok name for this village is merpernertl (Kroeber, 1925).
The list here is cut off at village no. 32, which Kroeber, following Powers, puts as the limit of the Wiyot.
In this conclusion I am in agreement with Professor Kroeber.
In the summary at the end of his paper Kroeber concludes that they (terms of relationship) are determined primarily by language.
These are the sources of the values given by Kroeber and Waterman.
This is three times Kroeber's estimate but conforms to the general level found in this review of the Northwest California tribes.
When Kroeber has no other data, he recommends a reduction by one-sixth.
