Inscription.
Sa’ Cumn’e means “Big House” in the Miwok Language
And was an early name for the Sacramento area

This plaza is dedicated to the Native Americans who walked this land before us and inspire current generations to carry forth their traditions.

From Placer County to Yosemite and Mount Diablo (Spirit Mountain) to the Sierra Range, the Miwok gathered to live, hunt and fish.

Where you now stand was once a large village. Analysis of the artifacts uncovered here established that this location has been inhabited for the last 8500 years.
