˜Kumiai Culture and History

As a complement to our Kumiai language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Kumiai tribe and their society. The emphasis of these pages is on Kumiais and other American Indians as living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Kumiai history is interesting and important, but the Kumiai Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
