The Ohlone:


Native American people have lived in California for thousands of years. The Ohlone people established their homes along the central California coast long before any European colonists arrived. Anthropologists who studied the language groups of California Indians named the people of the central California coast, Costanoan. The word, Costanoan, comes from the Spanish word costeños, which means "people of the coast." Today these people wish to be known as Ohlone.
