KULE LOKLO A Coast Miwok Cultural Exhibit

In 1980, MAPOM collaborated with the National Park Service to build an interpretive Coast Miwok Village at Kule Loklo in the Point Reyes National Seashore. The village is built from traditional materials and Coast Miwok rituals and protocols were observed in its construction.

Although this Cultural Exhibit is not inhabited, the village comes alive during events such as the Annual Big Time Festival held each July. Other MAPOM activities such as the California Indian Skills Classes are also held at Kule Loklo. In private ceremonies, the Roundhouse is regularly used for religious gathering by the Coast Miwok throughout the year.

Kule Loklo is maintained by volunteers, all are welcome regardless of experience. If you are interested in learning native skills by volunteering at Kule Loklo, please visit the volunteer website at
