Castro Adobe State Historic Park: Indigenous Peoples’ on the Rancho

November 12 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm PST

Join us at the Castro Adobe for an open house to learn about the contributions of the indigenous people as skilled laborers for the Castros on Rancho San Andres. Some of the first cowboys in California were indigenous and were known as vaqueros! Learn about other roles indigenous people had as farmers, construction workers, blacksmiths, cooks, and how they played a vital role in the economy on the ranchos. The Castro Adobe acknowledges the Awaswas speaking Aptos people, a band of the Ohlone who stewarded the land long before it was called Rancho San Andres.
