Over 8,500 Year Human Connection

History of art, music & nature in our community

The Coast Miwok inhabited our area from as early as 6,000 BC, until the early 1850s.The Miwoks constructed their temporary villages scattered throughout the area consisted of populations in the range of 70 to 200 people in order to avoid irreversible damage to the land. Their art was embedded in their daily lives as they gathered as a community to create rare and great baskets. The Miwok styles varied in design and complexity—taking months, sometimes years, to finish. They lived through music for a good harvest, to celebrate marriages, honor their ancestors, enact creation stories, and cure the sick for over 7,850 years. Read more.
