4E Tecuya Mountain

Location: Kern County, California

Name is derived from the Yokut Indian name Tokya, which is cited by Kroeber, as a name applied by them to the Chumash Indians who occupied this region. Alternatively, there was an Indian rancheria named Tacui (which is close enough to have perhaps been a Spanish transliteration of this same name) mentioned in the Archives of Mission Santa Barbara (1806).

Name first appears on USGS Tejon map (1904).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
