Mono Indians. Monache Indians. A general term applied to the Shoshonean tribes of south east California by their neighbors on the west. The origin and meaning of the name are obscure, its identity with the Spanish mono ‘monkey” and its similarity, at least in certain dialects, to the Yokuts word for ‘fly’ (monai, etc.) are probably only coincidences.
