The roundhouse, or hanni’, was the center of village religious activities and focal point of large, affluent villages. Most Miwok roundhouses were earth-covered, but after contact with non-Indians, the majority were built with split-wood shake roofs.";


And now for The Weekend -- the Southern Sierra Miwuk Nation is having its annual Big Time Gathering in Yosemite National Park on Saturday and Sunday. FM89’s News Director Alice Daniel spoke about it with Bill Leonard, chairman of the tribe. He starts by saying a lot of other tribes from the region will join in.
