School Programs - Indian Life

In October and November fourth graders come to the museum to learn about the Bay Miwok and Ohlone (Costanoan) Indians who once lived in the San Ramon Valley. These students, who study California history during fourth grade, have a chance to hear creation accounts, view artifacts from pre-historic times, pound acorns and play Indian games.

Indians lived in this valley for at least 5000 years. They had an ancient culture that was changed forever when the Spanish explorers arrived in the 18th century and the Gold Rush brought thousands of settlers to California in the 19th century.

For information on this program, call Eve Vojvoda or Donna Grier at 837-3750.
