For 10,000 years, the Pomo Indians lived in peace throughout the Bay Area and Northern California. But after the arrival of early settlers, their story turned tragic. The Pomo were killed, their land was stolen and polluted, and they were made slaves.
Today, we are fighting to preserve our culture, language and arts, and to re-establish a homeland in Contra Costa County. Our goal is to become economically self-sufficient while creating jobs and new economic opportunities for our tribe and our non-Indian neighbors.
