Coast Miwok-Southern Marin Band Monument Project




P H A S E   2


PHASE 2 OF THE COAST MIWOK MONUMENT PROJECT OF MARIN COUNTY!

The earth of Marin County, defiled now by foreign hands, is still as pure as the day that we left it. Our villages are gone, and our people who lived there. Our arrows are scattered, our bows are broken. The Creeks are dammed, and our ways forgotten. But it will not be that way.


From the Monument of the Coast Miwok, there will be reaped a harvest of memories, of a people who died but will not be forgotten. For the Olom-ko, the People of Olom-kocha, land of our fathers, and their fathers, and their fathers, back to the beginning of time, when the creatures of the earth were young and the world was just created.

Listen to our story...

Our goal is to commemorate the Coast Miwok of Marin County with a Statue that will be here to teach generations to come of the original People who loved this land.

Our hope is to let the community know who the People were who once existed here, to bring awareness about their lives and culture, and bring a Spirit of the Coast Miwok People back to Marin County.

We welcome all and hope you will join us in this endeavor! We need your help! If you have access to city contacts, professional services such as attorneys or accountants, or are willing to help with fundraising and other miscellaneous projects, please click on the Contact us link and let us know!

We are a small Non-Profit group and could use all of the volunteer help we can get! All donations are tax deductible as we are a recognized 501(c)(3) organization. The Tax ID number is: 84-3357267

We hope you share our passion for this project! We hope to leave a legacy with the Statue to Marin County for many years to come!

We are now collecting the balance for the full Bronze Statue, created by Will Pettee, artist of Monterey, to produce and install, at a location yet to be determined, to come to fruition!  

Here we go one more time!! (The artist is ready!)
