        When the last survivor of the expulsion of the Ahwahneechees returned to her former homeland, Yosemite Valley, 1929, George Melendez Wright, a young Park Service employee, was asked to help translate her Spanish into English. Totuya had been with her grandfather, Chief Tenaya in 1851, when a band of white men arrived to drive Tenaya's people onto a reservation. Source: Pam Wright Lloyd.
