The Miwok Archeological Preserve of Marin (MAPOM) was founded in 1970 as a result of community involvement in the excavation of a Coast Miwok village site.
Through a diverse range of programs and cooperative efforts, with groups such as the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria (Coast Miwoks) and the Point Reyes National Seashore, MAPOM seeks to promote accurate knowledge of the Coast Miwok Indians, the first people of Marin and southern Sonoma counties.
Interested in exploring physical site and attending lectures. Wish to high heaven I could get the certificate but it’s too much of a drive. Even on Saturdays I wouldn’t be able to take care of all my necessary chores here. But when do the lectures start in the 20th? I want to attend.
Hi Dawn, Thanks for your interest in the California Indian Studies Program. The four Native speakers will b making their presentations from 9:30 to 12:30 on the morning of the July 20th Big Time Celebration in the Point Reyes National Seashore. I would encourage you to attend this special opportunity to hear from these respected representatives from all over the State. The Big Time event in the afternoon, which is free, is a short walk away with Native dancers, crafts, skills demonstrations and lots more. You can contact the College of Marin at 415-485-9305 to register for the class. The MAPOM.org site offers more information about classes in the year to come. Hope to see you on July 20th and, if it works, at some of the classes.
Best, John Littleton
Having just renewed my interest in CISP, the Coastal Miwok, specifically, as I am a long ago registered member, I would be interested in receiving information about the upcoming classes. Many questions, looking for many answers.
