While California became an official state in 1850, the land itself had been occupied for nearly 20,000 years prior. There were countless tribes who called this region home, each adapting to the diverse terrain found in the state. Over the centuries rich cultures were developed here by tribes such as the Miwok, Pomo, and the Chumash. The beautiful Yosemite region in Northern California was inhabited by the Ahwahnechee people, a name meaning dwellers in Ahwahnee. The Miwok word Ahwahnee refers to the gaping mouth of a bear. Today, that name is used to refer to a historic landmark hotel in Yosemite Valley.
