About the Native American Pomo Tribe

The Pomo tribe descended from the Hokan-speaking people of Sonoma Country, California. They are believed to have evolved during a migration of the Hokan-speaking people to the mountain regions around Clear Lake. Some of the Proto-Pomo people migrated to the Russian river valley and North to present-day Ukiah. Their economy was based on tribeswomen processing acorns by mortar and pestle.
