Cultural Information:

The home of our ancestors, now part of Rancho Camulos Museum, was part of the greater village at Camulos and surrounded by other well-known Tataviam villages and cultural sites in the area. In the neighboring language, Camulos means “guata,” which is called wá’at in the language of our ancestors, meaning “juniper.” The village where Rancho Camulos Museum is located was called Coaynga. According to Setimo Lopez, informant to J.P. Harrington in 1916, Coay means “food.”
