Join naturalist Jerry Coe for an educational walk as he discusses the pre-colonial settlements of the coastal Miwok people at China Camp. He will cover how they survived within the landscape, their clothing, diet, what they used for medicine, and some of their common cultural practices. It is estimated that there were over several thousand Coastal Miwok in the North Bay at the time of the Spanish arrival in 1769. Most of this population was dispersed within 100 years. Many died of European diseases. Miwok people still live in the Bay Area today, with the largest group at Graton Rancheria in Sonoma County.
