Discovering Native People at Point Reyes

Betty Goerke’s new book Discovering Native People at Point Reyes is now available from MAPOM for $13.00.

This engaging story of the Coast Miwok people has a twofold purpose: to explain the natural history, cultural lifeways, and history of native life at Point Reyes and Tomales Bay from the time of Francis Drake’s arrival to the acknowledgment of the tribe by the US Government in 2000; and to suggest nine specific walks in the area which have been meaningful destinations for tribal people for thousands of years.  It includes information and photographs never before published, and is illustrated with over 75 photographs, most of them in color.

Betty is a MAPOM co-founder and board member, a trustee of the Museum of the American Indian, and has taught anthropology and archeology at College of Marin for over 35 years.
