6 of 6: CreekSpeak

Learn the History of Native Americans in Lower Putah Creek

Join Putah Creek Council for the final 2011 CreekSpeak on October 20 at 7 PM, at the Veteran’s Memorial Center Club Room, 203 E. 14th St in Davis. CreekSpeak is a 6-month series of community talks sponsored by Putah Creek Council.

The final talk, given by Victoria Bevolden, Lake Berryessa Ranger, will be about the Wintun Native Americans who lived in the Putah Creek Watershed, specifically the Berryessa Valley.  

Victoria will take you back in history to discuss how the Southern Wintun (Patwin) lived and used the resources that were available. She’ll discuss how their lives and the landscape have changed since Spanish, Mexican, and Anglo settlers arrived in the region.  Her presentation will cover a time span of pre-European contact, to when the Berryessa brothers acquired a Mexican land grant, to the town of Monticello before the current Lake Berryessa, all the way through the last Wintun in the area.

All CreekSpeak talks are free and open to the public. A $5 donation is requested, but not required, from people who are not active members of Putah Creek Council.
