Mill Valley and environs—Go Deeper
This region is the unceded ancestral homeland of the Coast Miwok and Southern Pomo peoples, now organized through the Graton Rancheria community and the Coast Miwok Tribal Council of Marin. Learn more through Museum of the American Indian or pay land tax to help Indigenous communities regain their land. As the Miwok say, “Mu’k-‘am Ka ‘I-ni’iko: We are all family.”
Marin County has been associated with music for decades. Read about its role in the 60s psychedelic movement, listen to Marin music oral histories, or create your own Marin music history driving tour.
