Finding Culture in Your Own Backyard

The pomo cultural center is closed until further notice during renovations. 


Opened in the early 1980’s, the Pomo Cultural Center is operated by the Coyote Valley Band of Pomo’s and the US Army Corps of Engineers. Modeled after a traditional Pomo roundhouse, the Pomo Cultural Center offers displays about Pomo hunting, dancing, money, and basketry.

Facilities

The center has a 100 seat outdoor amphitheater that doubles as meeting space. An exhibit area can be arranged for temporary exhibits or used outside of business hours for meetings. We are also looking for people interested in offering programs/activities and events for the public. Call (707) 467-4200 to discuss your ideas or schedule your meeting.
