"They led the refuges into their camp at San Felipe, a collection of crude huts made from reeds"

Diegueño, or Kumeyaay, homes were circular, domed structures woven from willow branches that still had the leaves attached. Mats or rabbit skins covered the doorways, and grasses were used to soften the floor.


San Felipe is located on the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez) in the Mexican state of Baja California, 190 km south of the United States border.
