This chapter reviews briefly the evidence that characterizes the Chumash as complex hunter-gatherers. It discusses the relationship between resource abundance, adaptive mechanisms that cope with environmental issues, and the arrival of social complexity. The chapter concludes with a section on two basic issues addressed in this study, namely the importance of centrally located places and the nature of power.

Keywords:   hunter-gatherers, Chumash, resource abundance, adaptive mechanisms, environmental issues, social complexity, centrally located places, nature of power
