New World Solstice Observation

Gambler's House summarizes what is known about solstice observation in California. 

Almost all pre-Columbian cultures in California kept track of the winter solstice. Some cultures that kept track of the winter solstice also kept track of the summer solstice but this tended to be more common at lower latitudes. This pattern holds for the larger area of what is now the Western United States.
