Library celebrates Native Americans



Sonoma County Library celebrates Native American Heritage Month in November with a slate of events that highlight the rich history of the original inhabitants of Sonoma County.

Native American Heritage Month celebrates and recognizes the accomplishments of the peoples who were the original inhabitants, explorers and settlers of the United States of America. Sonoma County is home to a number of Native American Tribes dating back to over 12,000 years. From the Coast, Miwoks; in the north near the Mayacamas Mountain Range dwelled Wintuns, Wapo and Miyakmahs; in the lower Valley, Pomos; near the edge of San Pablo Bay, Koskiwok; and in the southeast corner, Patwins; to name a few.

The library will be hosting programs for all ages throughout the month, including story times with the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, traditional California Indian basket weaving with Master Weaver Clint McKay (Dry Creek Pomo/Wappo/Wintun), Traditional Ecological Knowledge classes with the California Indian Museum and Cultural Center, and screenings of two contemporary films, Racing the Rez and Up Heartbreak Hill.

Visit the library’s website for details and locations, www.sonomalibrary.org, and keep up with the library on Facebook, www.facebook.com/sonomalibrary.

These events are free and open to all.
