Online Indigenous History of the Bay Area

January 14, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join naturalist Jerry Coe as he discusses the pre-colonial settlements of indigenous peoples in the San Francisco Bay Area. Jerry will cover the history of the Miwok and Ohlone people, how they survived within the landscape, and common cultural practices. He’ll also share how the thousands of Coastal Miwok who lived in the North Bay when Spaniards arrived in 1769 were almost wiped out within a century.  Many died of European diseases; others moved away. Miwok people still live in the Bay Area today, with the largest group at Graton Rancheria in Sonoma County.
