The subject of this paper is considered under three headings: geology, archeology, and ethnology. The geological part, though introduced mainly as an introduction to the archeological-ethnological sections of the article to show what kind of a country the ancients lived in and the present aborigines occupy, gives the formations in detail from the Ellison Dome on the west line of the reservation eastward across it, giving them as successively exposed around the dome and in the canyons from the older pre-Cambrian to the Quaternary. The archeological part gives the ruins of the region in detail, bringing to light many ruins that had not been previously known. It also gives the definite location and a short description of each ruin, about sixty ruins being described. The ethnological part treats of the Indians of the region, giving their linguistic family, the location of their reservations, and the number of Indians residing on same. It also gives their manners and customs in minute detail.
