Free Seminar on the Me-Wuk of the Big Trees: July 6

Arnold, CA...A Presentation on the Me-Wuk of the Big Trees is July 6 at 2pm (after the 4th of July Parade in Arnold) at Calaveras Big Trees State Park, Jack Knight Hall. After you enjoy the parade in Arnold, come on up to the park for a free seminar about the Native American people who lived in the Big Trees area, presented by Carlos Geisdorff representing the Tuolumne Tribal Council.





Geisdorff will speak about the daily lives of the Me-Wuk people, how they lived before the settlers arrived, their stories, culture and more. He will also have on display historical items collected by the tribe.

This seminar is put on by the Calaveras Big Trees Association as one in a series of educational programs within the park.

Geisdorff is the Me-Wuk Language Program Manager.

All seminars are free and open to the public. There is a day-use fee to enter the park. Pack a lunch, bring the family and plan on spending the day among the giant sequoias. For more information, call Calaveras Big Trees Association at 209-795-1196. (Please note the time change from the originally announced schedule, a change implemented to avoid conflict with the annual Arnold parade.)


Event occurs on 07/06/2019 from All Day to .

What a wonderful idea. Please consider holding again as many in the area will be entertaining family and visitors for what is essentially 4th of July weekend.

    It is a great idea to hold seminars like this. The Native Americans living near Big Trees at places like Squaw Hollow were numerous and little is known of their history and they seldom showed in census records either.

      You must be a transplant from another area. Many of us here have ancestors who settled Calaveras County many generations ago.

      The Miwok were fat and lazy. Plenty of deer and acorns. They made nothing of value or beauty like many other Native American Tribes. They have all fought so much with each other that they just disband and start a new band or tribe. It was common in the past to see them drunk and fighting at all of the county events and functions. It was actually like watching a comedy show in slow motion. They were so drugged and inebriated they could not fight their way out of a paper bag.

      Many still live in tar paper shacks today, while others they are related to have large payments from casinos. When the people of California voted for casinos, it was expected that the casinos would bring all California Indians up. The greedy casino owning Indian families refuse to share with the rest of the Indians in the state. Many are addicted to opiates. So much that Amador County is getting a Methadone clinic. The tribe leaders are making them be drug tested before they are handed their checks from the casino.

      There is lots more that is locally known, but you not being from here would not ever know. Of course this event here is most likely embellished and geared to hiding the real truth, instead creating a romantic fairy tale. I'm wondering if you even know about the people and place you came from?
