Cuyama Valley

 

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the California Division of Highways carried out three highway realignment projects along State Route 166 in Cuyama Valley, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. Salvage archaeological work was conducted at seven sites, but the resulting extensive collections were never formally catalogued or documented. Some 40 years later, a Caltrans Transportation Enhancement grant proposal to analyze and document the Cuyama Valley Archaeological Collections project was awarded to Far Western. The result was a five-volume set entitled Cuyama Valley – A Corridor to the Past.

The archaeological volumes (I–III) include: (1) a graphic representation of local temporal indicators across time, as well as temporal charts of local projectile point and bead types; (2) identification of, and focus on, site-specific temporal components; (3) extensive original research and discussions on landscape evolution and geoarchaeological sensitivity, including a map of buried site potential in the Caltrans right-of-way in the Cuyama Valley; (4) a detailed description and discussion of a fully exposed Chumash structure; (5) analysis of yucca-roasting ovens, including feature descriptions, plant identifications, and preparation methods and resulting archaeological evidence; (6) a contribution to the ongoing debate on artiodactyl abundance; and (7) patterns of technology, settlement, and social interactions.

Ethnographic/ethnohistoric Volume IV includes: (1) estimates of non-mission populations in Cuyama Valley, and the effects of European-borne diseases, especially on children; (2) discussions and complex diagrams of social interactions between Cuyama Valley inhabitants and surrounding villages; (3) detailed kinship charts of Native individuals associated with Cuyama Valley villages; (4) first-hand accounts from court dockets of Cuyama Valley Native Americans in the 1840s and 1850s; and (5) a focus on the concerns and activities of today’s Chumash who are carrying on the traditions and languages of their ancestors.

Historic Volume V includes: (1) a documented history of Cuyama Valley’s early settlement and land use, with special reference to the occupation of sites during the Spanish and Mexican periods in California; (2) evolution of transportation corridors through the valley; and (3) development of adjacent road- and highway-related features that have encroached upon the seven Cuyama Valley sites.

Three genres of public-oriented interpretive material were prepared in close collaboration with Northern, Barbareño, and Ventureño Chumash individuals. A series of bookmarks and exhibits was created to be used for public lectures and social events, and a publication entitled The Long Road Traveled – Archaeology, Native Americans, and Europeans in Cuyama Valley summarizes all relevant findings from this study for a more general audience. Some three-dimensional models of artifacts found at the sites can be viewed in the 3D Visualization Gallery.

Wahtoke Creek

 

The Wahtoke Creek Project was a major archaeological investigation at site CA-FRE-61 for the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 6, Fresno. Far Western had conducted test excavations at the site in 1992, with results published in California State University, Bakersfield’s Occasional Papers in Anthropology. Caltrans later requested that we conduct data recovery at the site as mitigation for their proposed bridge replacement at Wahtoke Creek.

Data recovery at CA-FRE-61 in 2012 included hand and mechanical excavation, geoarchaeological assessment, laboratory analyses, and preparation of a scientific report documenting our findings. The excavations yielded an incredibly large collection of stone tools and several caches of plant-processing implements dating to the Middle Holocene era. In the scientific report, authors Jeff Rosenthal and Adie Whitaker examine how the site fits into the archaeological record of the region, and of central California in general. They conclude that CA-FRE-61 was part of a distinct settlement and subsistence pattern probably oriented to the Central Valley, in contrast to the foothill-oriented pattern reflected at sites farther north.

The Wahtoke Creek Project also included innovative public interpretation, education, and tribal outreach products:

    • An English/Choinumni dictionary produced in consultation with the local Native American community.
    • A video recording of Choinumni Elder John Davis and his assistant Nicole Agredano reading all entries in the dictionary.
    • A fourth-grade class curriculum, and a full-color illustrated children’s book of traditional Choinumni Yokuts and Mono stories, for use in Fresno area elementary schools, entitled In the Time when Animals were People by Sharon Waechter and illustrated by Tammara Norton.

Statement of Qualifications

A thorough consideration of cultural resources is integral to the broader goals of the environmental review and compliance process. Since 1979, Far Western has worked in partnership with private industry, government agencies, tribal governments, and non-profit organizations to achieve these goals, and we are recognized as one of the leading cultural resources consulting firms in the United States. 

Our ownership team consists of seven archaeologists and a GIS SpecialistKelly McGuire, M.A. Jeffrey Rosenthal, M.A.D. Craig Young, Ph.D.Jerome King, M.APaul Brandy, M.S., Daron Duke, Ph.D., Adrian Whitaker, Ph.D.and Barb Siskin, M.A. These dedicated leaders have between 17 and 41 years of professional experience and actively participate in technical studies and research; each partner plays an integral in managing the company. 

The key to our ability to provide consistent, high-quality service begins and ends with the 80 employees comprising the permanent staff of Far Western. This includes 36 Ph.D.- and M.A.-level archaeologists, most of whom have been with the company for more than five years. The Far Western Headquarters in Davis, California, houses a state-of-the-art archaeological research facility complete with artifact processing and analytical laboratories; graphics, GIS, and production departments; research library; and secure artifact curation space. Regional offices include our Bay Area Branch in Sausalito, California, our Desert Branch in Henderson, Nevada, and our Great Basin Branch in Carson City Nevada. Each regional branch is integrated with our headquarters in Davis but maintains management, staff, and logistical operations to meet the needs of clients in local areas. 

Clients

Our team, along with our industry and government partners, has successfully completed some of the largest and most demanding cultural resources programs in the highly regulated energy, water resources, mining, military facilities, urban development, and transportation sectors.

Our clients benefit from both cutting-edge technology and advanced archaeological science.

  • Energy
  • Water Resources
  • Mining
  • Military Facilities
  • Transportation
  • Land and Resources Management
  • Private Development

Energy

Without a doubt, the most challenging cultural resources studies and regulatory environment are associated with the development of massive geothermal, gas-pipeline, and electrical-transmission-line projects. Add to this the burgeoning effort directed at solar- and wind-power generation. Over the last 25 years, Far Western has served as principal technical consultant for some of the largest energy projects in California, Nevada, and the Pacific Northwest. We have conducted test evaluations and data recovery excavations at archaeological sites along over 1,000 miles of gas pipeline and electric transmission line corridors. These studies not only allowed our clients to proceed with licensing and construction in a timely and cost-effective manner, but have also resulted in comprehensive research reports that have proved lasting contributions to regional prehistory and history.

Clients Include

  • Pacific Gas and Electric Company
  • Pacific Gas Transmission
  • El Paso Natural Gas
  • California Energy Corporation
  • Nevada Energy
  • Tuscarora Gas Transmission Company
  • Mojave Pipeline Company
  • Water Resources

Far Western is actively involved in a diverse range of water resource projects dealing with issues such as dam and reservoir maintenance and expansion, water conveyance, levee stabilization and rehabilitation, hydroelectric project re-licensing, and river restoration. These studies include overviews, management plans, feasibility studies, alternatives analysis, geoarchaeological assessments, and a variety of field investigations. Clients include federal agencies such as the Bureau of Reclamation and the Army Corps of Engineers, along with state, regional, and local agencies that deal with water resource issues.

Mining

From exploration through development phases, mining ventures strive to comply with the regulatory environment of federal and state cultural resources policies. Far Western assists mining programs in all phases of development by understanding the time and cost constraints of early exploration and by being prepared to match the needs of large scale undertakings. We have experience throughout the state of Nevada, having successfully completed inventory and mitigation efforts, as well as EIS/EIR documents, for expansive hard-rock facilities, saleable sites, and numerous drilling/exploration projects.

Military Facilities

Far Western has long-standing partnerships at some of the largest and most active military bases in the country, including the National Training Center at Fort Irwin—the US Army’s primary training facility for mechanized warfare—the Naval Air Weapons Stations at China Lake and Fallon, and the Utah Test and Training Range, Hill Air Force Base. Cultural resources programs conducted in these environments are demanding, to say the least, and involve hands-on experience with military range control and “live-fire” schedules, ordnance safety, and facility security protocols.

Transportation

Along with providing consultant services to a variety of city and county transportation authorities, Far Western has successfully completed 18 multi-year State- and District-wide “on-call” cultural resources procurements for the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). Through our multiple Transportation Enhancement Act (TEA) procurements, we transformed the Caltrans paper site record files into a state-of the-art GIS database. Our outstanding track record in transportation studies for Caltrans is reflected in Far Western’s 2007 Governor’s Historic Preservation Award.

Land and Resources Management

Far Western has conducted archaeological studies for a variety of federal and state land and resource management agencies, such as the Bureau of Land Management, Forest Service, Bureau of Reclamation, National Park Service, and the California Department of Natural Resources. Many of these studies are conducted as part of the environmental review process associated with timber sales, fire rehabilitation, land exchanges, trail and recreational development, stream and habitat restoration, and road construction. These same organizations are often the lead agencies for larger-scale private and public development projects. This provided Far Western with a working knowledge of agency-specific guidelines and management procedures, as well as a thorough grounding in state and federal historic preservation statutes.

SPECIAL SERVICES

Geoarchaeology

Far Western has assembled an outstanding team of geoarchaeologists who play an integral role in nearly every one of our projects. Our award-winning team has been recognized for their innovative studies by the Society for California Archaeology and the California Preservation Foundation. These studies include assessments of sensitivity for buried landforms and archaeological resources not easily identified by other means. Such assessments help our clients avoid costly delays that can arise when unanticipated discoveries are made during project construction.

GIS – Geographic Information Systems

Far Western has taken the lead in the analysis and integration of GIS data and applications in a cultural resources context for state and federal agencies that are concerned with proactive cultural resources management. GIS-based data management tools allow Far Western to map and understand the distribution of archaeological resources on the landscape, identify conflicts with current and proposed land-use activities, locate data gaps for future research direction, and create searchable databases for state clearinghouses and other agencies. Our GIS team also works side-by-side with our geoarchaeologists to construct sensitivity models and maps for buried resources.

Public Education and Interpretation

Our creative professionals and researchers collaborate to produce outstanding educational and interpretive products, including the following:

  • Museum-quality exhibits and installations.
  • Exterior educational signs and wayside exhibits.
  • Educational pamphlets and booklets.
  • Broadcast-quality educational films and web spots.
  • Educational website articles.
  • Training and reference materials for agency and construction personnel.

There is a growing realization that the results of cultural resources studies should be available to the public. Far Western has long been at the forefront of this movement. Art Director Tammara Ekness Norton, who has been with Far Western for more than 25 years, heads our design team. Ms. Norton has designed numerous web articles for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CALFIRE), the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), and California State Parks. She also has designed and overseen fabrication and installation of museum-quality exhibits for the military, California State Parks, the University of California, and Caltrans, and has worked in tandem with Far Western researchers and Native American consultants to produce numerous public education documents.

Email Brian

Brian has extensive archaeological experience in a variety of semi-arid and arid settings world-wide. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Arizona. Until the early 1990s, he conducted research in the Near East exploring the transition from hunting and gathering to farming, the onset of sedentary life, and the social organization of early villages at the end of the Pleistocene. Since 1992, he has directed numerous cultural resources management projects throughout California focused on the archaeological record of ancestral Native Americans. These studies have ranged from large-scale surveys to extensive data recovery excavations, in localities such as the San Francisco Bay area, the Central Valley, the Mojave Desert, Owens Valley, along the southern California coast, and on the Chanel Islands. He joined the Far Western team in 2004.

Brian is interested in hunter-gatherer adaptations and the origins of social complexity from a cross-cultural perspective. His investigations into ancestral hunter-gatherers are often interdisciplinary in nature, and explore the complex interrelationship between human decision-making, social interaction and complexity, and environmental factors. In 1999, he was awarded the Thomas E. King award for excellence in cultural resources management from the Society for California Archaeology. He is also a research associate with the Department of Anthropology, University of California, Davis, and an enrolled member in the federally recognized Shawnee Tribe.
