Our resource about history and living POMO people today

* under construction


Our first small piece on the Clear Lake Pomo is actually an Opinion piece written by Calyton Duncan for the Lake County Record-Bee. This is in regards to an effort to change the Mascot of Kelseyville High School to "Indians". Kelsey was a squatter who in mainstream history is given credit for founding the town, along with his accomplice, a man by the name of Stone. These men committed atrocities on the Pomo Indigenous Americans.

Kelsey finally pushed the Pomo too far. Normlly a quiet and reverent people, they rose up and killed him at his home. As a result of this, the U.S. Army conducted ethnic cleansing in Lake, Sonoma and Mendocino counties. These depredations on the peaceful populace included massacres of entire villages. More on this later, video included.
