From the Guidebook:
In a village, the roundhouse
served as the center of ceremonial and social life. Constructed
in 1974, the Chaw se' roundhouse continues this tradition.
With its door facing the east, towards the rising sun,
four large oaks are the focal point of this sixty foot in diameter
structure. Today, ceremonial roundhouses are the most significant
architectural manifestation of the continuing Mistook
Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with the Sierra Native American Council and the Chaw Se' Association, October 14, 1994.
