Where do the Pomo Live?

For more information on the Pomos and their environment, read about the Sinkyone Intertribal Forest National Park.

Click here for information on Indian Roundhouses. This page is put together by the Costanoan Ohlone Indian Canyon Resource Center and contains information on Northern California Roundhouses.

Pomos and Education

The Stewart Indian School opened in the 1890s and educated American Indians from the Pomo and Warm Springs Tribes (among many others).

Pomo Religion

If you would like more information on Northern California Indian religions see this page on the Nome Cult.

Pomo Baskets

This is a page written by Laura with links to images of baskets and weavers, as well as information on the uses and types of Baskets made in California.

California Indian Film Clips & Music

This page from the Costanoan Tribe includes a short audio of a Pomo Hunting Song. (You will probably need to download it onto your desktop and then clip on it there to make it play.) It also includes various film clips one of which is on a roundhouse.

Pomo History

For an Indian account of the California Gold Rush, check out Original Voices's interesting native history project.

Pomo Medicine

For information on contemporary medical facilities for the Pomo see the Elsie Allen Health Center's webpage. As a more general source, you might also visit the Aboriginal Healing Foundation.
