 We provide core programming classes that explore the history and culture of Native Americans in California and other regions in Marin and beyond.  


A gathering place year-round, the Museum and surrounding park are areas for lectures, poetry readings, workshops, and hands-on activities.

What people are saying…

   a wonderful space to be soothed as an adult. And children love the museum. It is a very special area with a small creek running through it.   

Amazing tours and crafts for children. A beautiful way to teach reverence, respect for nature, and a spiritually alive and grounded culture.   

   Let us give rise to education about the history of the Native American People and their beautiful way of life.
