Exhibit Opening: Memorial Day, May 30, 12:00pm – 4:00pm
In partnership with the Amador County Arts Council, the Miwok Heritage Center invites you to learn about the role Miwok people played in the war efforts in history. This exhibit includes pictures and information about the Miwok people and patriotic acts in which they participated. Little is known of these acts or that, in many instances, the Miwok were not citizens of the countries that they represented in these skirmishes. Miwok people are proud of their contributions in forming California and defending the United States.
This exhibit highlights the contributions and sacrifices Miwok men and women made in defending their lands as it changed ownership from Spain, Mexico and then the United States of America.
