The Miwok's home was in the gold-laden foothills of the Central Sierra Nevada range. This is their story as it has never been told before. Then imagine that in the space of a few months 90,000 "uyeayu"-white men-come uninvited to all the PEOPLE'S villages to tear away the ground under the PEOPLE'S feet looking for rocks. For each one of you there are 10 of them.

The Miwok (also spelled Miwuk, Mi-Wuk, or Me-Wuk) are members of four linguistically related Native American groups indigenous to what is now Northern California.

Anthropologists commonly divide the Miwok into four geographically and culturally diverse ethnic subgroups. These distinctions were not used among the Miwok before European contact.

Native Americans, also known as American Indians, Indigenous Americans and other terms, are the indigenous peoples of the United States, except Hawaii and territories of the United States.

It was then, as now, an ethnically and linguistically diverse landscape.

Miwok Means People contains a new and refreshing appraisal of Miwok life before it was rudely and completely dis­rupted by the influx of gold-seeking '49ers. It often is in sharp disagreement with the distorted impressions recorded by early writers, almost all of whom arrived well after the Gold Rush and observed a culture in total disarray. The author 's research revealed ample evidence that Miwok life was in complete harmony with nature. They knew the flora and fauna of their world and from them harvested the needs of life: food, clothing, shelter, tools, and medicine. They knew little of starvation, wars, or weapons of war. Their games were simple but pleasurable. Their medicines were innumerable and apparently ade­quate until the white man came. This book provides a new depth of understanding and an insight into the true Miwok way of life--a fundamental, uncomplicated way of living which holds increasing attraction for many today.

"Miwok Means People" is the best ethnographic source I have ever found on the Miwok. This should be required reading for anyone who is serious about the study of the Miwok, for which there is an shameful lack of ethnographic data. There is an appendix which contains an English-Miwok list of words as spoken by seven groups of Miwok and there are also five pages of bibliographic references.

There are many texts on the demise of the Miwok, but Professor Conrotto's book shows us how they lived and where they are today. The book contains photographs of artifacts and people, foodstuffs and dwelling places. There is an ethno-botanical section as well as a discussion of their technologies. This is a must have reference for Ethnographers, Anthropologists, Archaeologists, Historians and anyone else researching early California's original inhabitants, the Miwok.

Very nice to ready about this great tribe!

Much more thorough and enjoyable than the entry in the Handbook of North American Indians, this book interests you in Miwok history, customs, and current status. Several sections lack usefulness (miwok vocabulary for example), but most sections are well-written with excellent photos and effective diagrams and illustrations.

Again, THE book on the miwok.

Some good information but far too littered with the authors antipathy towards his own white race to be considered any kind of history book. Yes, we understand you dont like white imperialists and colonialism. You dont need to interject your judgements at every turn, and you dont need to virtue signal your own goodness constantly. It's really bogged down by this but you can see there us great knowledge here as well
