Twin Pine Hotel and Casino is an enterprise of the Middletown Rancheria of Pomo Indians of California. This Calistoga hotel and the Tribe will be hosting an Indian Day Celebration on Saturday, September 17. The event will include traditional dance groups, complimentary native cuisine (while supplies last), and handmade crafts as a way to help visitors develop an understanding of, and appreciation for, native culture in general and the Pomo Indians of California in particular.
History and Culture of the Tribe
In the 1800s, descendants of the Lake Miwok Indians had found themselves landless and homeless. To remedy the situation, the Middletown Rancheria was established in July 1910 on 108 acres of land purchased by the small Tribe. Members of other Tribal groups including Pomo, Wappo, and Wintun then joined with the People of the Tribe.
