Celebrating Native American Day in Contra Costa County

Join the Contra Costa County Historical Society in honoring the culture and heritage of Contra Costa County's first human inhabitants - Native Americans.  Author Dean McLeod will talk about his research on one of the County's first people - the Chupcan tribe. 

Did you know?  The land across the street from the Willow Pass Community Center is where the Chupcans built a village and lived for hundreds and possibly thousands of years.  The Chupcans, a tribelet of the Bay Miwok Indians, are known to have inhabited Diablo Valley likely from Clayton to Pacheco.

Dean's talk will conclude with a walk across the street from the Community Center to see the tree line that marks the former stream where the village once stood.

DETAILS:   Admission is free.  Refreshments will be served.  Free parking is available.   $10.00 suggested donation at the door. 

RSVP is requested.  To RSVP, please call (925) 229-1042 or email [email protected]

We hope you will join us in honoring Native American Day!  (officially Friday, September 23rd)
