I used to live in Sacramento and I decided to be a tourist on my most recent visit. I apparently had overlooked this small but delightful museum. It is literally hidden in the shadows of Fort Sutter. You can plainly see it from the K-Street side. The walls are adorned with the best of Native American artwork and photos. The staff is very accommodating and the price is a bargain.

I loved this small museum. Although it is small it is worth a visit especially if you are visiting Sutters Fort at the same time.

It does a good job in describing the lesser known Indian tribes of California. the California tribes were more scattered and smaller than the tribes in the Eastern US or on the Great Plains, so they have received less coverage in history books. Also, many of the California tribes were wiped out by disease when they attempted to join the missionaries around the mission system and many virtually lost their identity through assimilation with the settlers.

This museum was useful for investigating the native past of this region. Staff was helpful. A little hectic on free days.
