    Hands-on-History: Before the Gold Rush

    Even before the gold discovery, the community of Sutter's Fort and the visitors to New Helvetia were an incredibly diverse mixture of people and cultures. There were the local Native people who became such an important part of Sutter's dreams. There were at least 30 different groups of Native people mentioned in the New Helvetia Diary (the daily log book of Sutter's Fort) as having visited or provided labor for John Sutter.

    Experience foods, drinks, activities, and games practiced by the many cultures that inhabited the Fort. There will be many hands-on crafts such as stringing beads, making dolls, seeing a variety of different weapons, and making your own souvenir. Cannon demonstrations are scheduled for 11am, 1pm, and 3pm.

    The adjacent California State Indian Museum is also having activities for "Before the Gold Rush."
