Hopland Band of Pomo Indians


Since the beginning of time the indigenous people from Hopland known as  The Sho-Ka-Wah have had a strong connection to the land. The plentiful Russian River valley provided everything the people needed to live a bountiful life. With five assembly houses and six chiefs, Sho-Ka-Wah was the largest village in Central Pomo territory before contact.The river not only provided plentiful fish but also along its sandy shores grew willow and sedge, traditional materials used for making the beautiful baskets the Pomo master weavers are known for worldwide.
