TOPIC:  THE MIWOK INDIAN TRIBE OF CALIFORNIA

Miwok (also spelled Miwuk, Mi-Wuk, or Me-Wuk) can refer to any one of four linguistically related groups of Native Americans, indigenous to Northern California, who traditionally spoke one of the Miwokan languages in the Utian family. The word Miwok means people in their native language.

In 2008, ancient artifacts related to Miwok ancestors were unearthed in Calaveras County, some 5000 years old. Many of the artifacts will be reburied with a special ceremony. The Miwok believe the artifacts belong to the land.[2]

Population:
