Besides a small district at the southern end of Clear lake, and larger territory that included all of Marin and a part of Sonoma county, Miwok Indians occupied the western slope of the Sierra Nevada from the summit to the San Joaquin plain, and from Fresno river in the south to Cosumnes river in the north. The higher regions are veined with brawling mountain brooks, which converge into such larger streams as Merced, Tuolumne, Stanislaus, Calaveras, adm Mokelumne. Yosemite and many of the sequoia groves lie in Miwok territory.
