Online: Indigenous History of the Bay Area

November 19, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join naturalist Jerry Coe for an educational Zoom discussion as he discusses the pre-colonial settlements of the indigenous people in the San Francisco Bay Area. He will cover the history of the Miwok and Ohlone people, how they survived within the landscape, 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.
