This week I was going through photographs taken by my late mother, Peggy Williams, and discovered three photographs of Kule Loklo that she took in 1978 of the original roundhouse under construction, a tule kotcha, and the sweat house. The roundhouse shown in this picture was replaced in 1992 by the current roundhouse.
You can enlarge each photo by clicking it. Enlarging the sweathouse photo, you can see behind the sweathouse the roundhouse roof on the left and tule kotchas on the right.
Kule Loklo was created by MAPOM and the Park Service in Point Reyes National Seashore in the 1970s. The annual Big Time festival in July of each year features Pomo and Miwok dancing as well as vendors and traditional skills demonstrators. You can see photographs of Kule Loklo at kuleloklo.com.
