The Museum building houses the valley's Native American Collection,
as well as a gallery space for rotating exhibitions. The museum features
Native Californian basketry, clothing, and artifacts, as well as demonstrations
of traditional basket weaving and tool making techniques.
Yosemite has been the home of the Miwok Indians for thousands
of years. Outside the Museum is the reconstructed Miwok village of
Ahwahnee. The homes, sweat lodges, and ceremonial round houses built
from large strips of cedar bark, are typical of Sierra Indian structures
from the 19th century.
Yosemite is the native word for "The place that looks like a
big mouth". Yosemite was the home and refuge of the Miwok indians
until the 1890s, when they were finally expelled from their traditional
home by the US cavalry.
