The eastern periphery of California's Delta region is a bountiful environment that hosted the second highest prehistoric population density in North America. Rich cultures developed in this region from modern Sacramento to Modesto and the area is crucial to the early history of California.

Join us for a virtual program with anthropologist and museum director David Stuart as he guides us through the history of California's unique Delta region. Stuart will discuss not only the region itself, but the lifeways and histories of the many Native nations that lived there for thousands of years.

David Stuart recently retired as the executive director of the San Joaquin County Historical Society. Previously, he directed the Sacramento History Museum, the Sacramento Science Center, and museums in Ventura. Stuart is currently researching a book, assisting with the development of a Delta Welcome Center and educational facility in Clarksburg, and serving on the Advisory Committee for the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta National Heritage Center. His family settled in the Delta in 1860.
