"This is right. These hills, valleys and creeks in the very center of the beautiful Marin Peninsula are the home place of the Huukuiko people. This place, called ‘Etcha Tamal, was part of the vast Coast Miwok homeland stretching from the ocean to the bay. More than 175 years ago, this rich and sacred land was taken from the people by one alien government and then another. Here in this valley, the new landowner allowed a small number of the original people to stay, and in 1872 the next owner sold twenty-five acres to Huukuiko elder, Jose Calistro, so that he could continue to live with his children and sisters and brothers and cousins. Less than 20 years later the land was lost again, another white man taking ownership, and so it has been for well over a century. Now we are approaching the time where some of this land can be returned to the Huukuiko people and their sisters and brothers: this is right."

Dewey Livingston, Marin historian
