#0900 Nisipowinan Village Site

Site information:

The OHP website now lists location as "restricted per Section 6254.10 of CA State Government Code."

Previously, the published guidebook gave the location as "Discovery Park, near Archery Range," which is approximate.  The photos show the archery range.  There may be some archaeological remains of this site, but nothing that I know of.

OHP description:

This was the location of the most significant Indian village and cemetery of this region. The Nisipowinan, part of the Maidu tribe, had a strong economic and cultural interaction with Capt. John A. Sutter's settlement in the 1840s.
