#43 MIWUK VILLAGE AND INDIAN LIFE.
The Miwuk Indian Tribe is native to this area. Miwuk translated means the “The People”. Their staple diets were acorn meal, seeds, venison, and gray squirrel. Homes of the Yosemite Indian tribe were made of cedar bark and called “Umacha”. We have various baskets and necklaces items of daily use on display plus a “Indian Life” diorama. We also have an recreated “Umacha” on our museum grounds (this display is available for viewing but under reconstruction, please excuse our dust).
