PART ONE: Early Life along the Coast

White, Tekla N.
January 1996
Missions of San Francisco Bay Area;1996, p16
For thousands of years, the area around San Francisco Bay in northern California was the land of the Ohlone and the Coast Miwok Indians. Ohlone Indians lived south of the bay along the Pacific Ocean. The bay and lands inhabited by other tribes separated the Coast Miwok from the Ohlone. The two groups sometimes met to trade goods but otherwise had little contact. The land of the Ohlone was like a sponge, soaking up the rains that fell during the wet season, from October through April. Early in the fall, before the wet season set in, oak trees in the hills provided acorns, a staple food source.
