The Paipai Indians continue in present day to live in Baja California, Mexico in an area south-east of Ensenada. Materials
in the Paipai collection were field collected from 1955 to 1959 and consist of ethnographic as well as archaeological pieces.
The Paipai Indians of Baja California are linguistically related to a number of Yuman language speaking bands known collectively
as Kumeyaay or Tipai-Ipai (meaning "people"). The Spanish referred to them as Diegueno, after the Mission San Diego (literally
meaning "little people of Diego.")
