Where Did the Miwok Indian Tribe Live?

The Miwok Indian tribe lived in northern and central California centuries ago. Some of their villages were located along the Cosumnes River and Calaveras River in the Sierra Nevada while other villages were located near Mount Diablo and Yosemite National Park.

The Miwok Indian tribe had many subgroups that were located across California. Many of these Miwok tribes were named for the regional areas where they originated, such as the Lake Miwok in Lake County, the Plains Miwok in the San Joaquin delta, the Southern Miwok along the Mariposa Creek and the Bodega Miwok in the Bodega Bay coastal area.
