Highly informative, for adults. Check out her Wikipedia page. Sadly, this national treasure is overlooked by most tour guides. Imagine, a Real Native American Indian in Yosemite Valley !! Her fine , extremely labor intensive plant fiber baskets are museum pieces and are highly valued.

We took our time wandering through this gallery and museum. The gallery had wonderful, and varied art works inspired by Yosemite. Not all landscapes. Then we chatted with a demonstrator in the museum. He demoed several flutes, including multi-flutes that sang chords. He also answered our questions about the original tribes that were at Yosemite.

And I saw a small deer. This is a good spot to go if you are waiting for the Yosemite movie to start. It is well done, and exhibits look like they... More

Opened in 1926, this museum has done such a good job blending in, it seems to get overlooked by visitors....just look at the number of reviews! The focus is on the Ahwahnechee who once lived in the valley, but that's not all. There's also many historic park photos and artifacts, including one from John Muir. From now until through October...

The little village deli and gift store in the meadows. You can sit outside and eat a great deli style lunch and look all around. In Yosemite, you wish your head spun like an owl's. I sat in the parking lot at the lookout,because I did not want our small tourist van 10 people waiting, looked left and there she... More
