The Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria presents a program for children and their families at the Sonoma Valley Library on Wednesday, Nov. 8, at 4 p.m.

The program will look at the history of the Coast Miwok and Southern Pomo people from pre-contact, through the Mission and Rancheria periods to restoration and present day cultural revitalization.

Youth Services Librarian Clare O’Brien says, “This interactive program offers a hands-on opportunity for local students to get an idea of living in Sonoma County long ago. If you’re a fourth grade student studying California history, this is the perfect program for you and your classmates. Also, November is Native American Heritage Month!”

The event is free. The library is located at 755 W. Napa St.
