Coast Miwok



The Coast Miwok (Olamentke), including the Lake Miwok, lived on the California coast north of San Francisco and inland to Clear Lake. They spoke languages of the Miwok family of the Penutian phylum. There are a few descendants of the Coast Miwok still living in California, but the culture has disappeared.
