4.Ishi designated Lathyrus sulphurea, kununutspi'i, as yielding a yellow paint for arrows. The "onion" from which green was obtained may have been a plant related to the lily Fritillaria lanceolata, which he called t'aka, although he declared this species to produce a salmon-colored dye. Commandra umbellata, punentsaw'i in his language, was also used for painting arrows.
