Kashia Band of Pomo Indians

In 2015, Kashia Band of Pomo Indians re-acquired 678 acres of ancestral homelands along the north coast of Sonoma County. This property is being used to support the Kashia Marine Resource Education Pilot Project – a sustainable platform program for teaching ocean and coastal science and Native American history and practices to both Tribal Members and the public. Currently Kashia are developing a commercial aquaculture farm, and working with scientists at Bodega Bay Marine Laboratory on the plight of red abalone given the devastation of kelp forests. This inspiring project looks to focus both upon Traditional Ecological Knowledge, as well as science in relation to conservation, stewardship and sustainability.
