They had dark skin with brown to black eyes, were of medium height, and well built. Their hair was long and braided. They used red paint on their faces to prevent sun and wind burn. Men plucked their beards using clam shells and women tweaked their eyebrows. The original attire of the clan reflected almost a complete lack of modesty by early European standards of dress. On special occasions the women put on beaded buckskin pants.

Men wore simple breechcloths and leggings. During mild weather the men wore no clothing at all. When travelling, both sexes dressed in rain capes made of shredded bark or small furs and buckskin moccasins. The short Yaquina River and its adjacent region along the Pacific Ocean formed the extent of their territory.

At the end of the 18th century their domain stretched down the coast to what is now Beaver Creek and north to include Cape Foulweather and Otter Rock. Their history is based upon the results of archeological studies and explorer journal entries that described the traits and story of the Yacona’s.
