Excerpt from The Diegueño Ceremony of the Death Images
This ceremony was performed generally by the Indians through out San Diego and Riverside counties, and possibly much farther north, at the time the missions were established. When the natives embraced the Roman Catholic f... aith, the custom was discontinued by many of the tribes, but a few natives still cling tenaciously to the ancient rite. In general it may be said that the tribes living remote from the missions and therefore least affected by their in¿uence are the ones that still practice the Image Ceremony.
