Collection Description

YA-KA-AMA, which means "Our Land" in the Pomo language, is a non-profit organization founded in 1971. It is situated in a rural setting on 125 acres of prime agricultural land in Western Sonoma County near Forestville, California. Our mission is to support traditional Native culture and values; to give Native People the tools to become contributing members of their communities; and to improve educational opportunities and resources for American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians.

The tapes capture a wide range of tribal events including media workshops, baseball games, Earth Day celebrations, youth festivals, and much more.
