The Pomo used marsh plants for food and in the manufacture of nearly everything that they utilized in daily life. Tules were used to construct houses, moccasins, and leggings. Shredded tule was used to manufacture shirts, skirts, and bedding. The Pomo used willow shoots and roots and sedges to weave baskets, cradles, and fish traps. They used bundled tule to make boats that were used for fishing, hunting of waterfowl, and transportation around the lake.
During the spring and early summer, the Pomo inhabited villages and encampments along the lakeshore and feeder creeks
