Some Pomo Culture History

To start things off, we've put up some scenes from a movie made by the Berkeley University in 1961 by the Stewarts Point Kashia Southern Pomo Indians and Berkeley Anthropology. Our advisor, David Smith, who you can see making clapper sticks on this website, was in this movie as a boy. He remembers the day the movie was made as "a lot of fun". He says it was an important movie to make; important then--as it is now--to make sure Native people have access to their own culture.
