The pop-up market will include 20 vendors, plus interactive demonstrations and educational booths on display for visitors to browse, shop and experience. Popular for all ages, a sampling of the hands-on demonstrations available will include basketry, acorn processing, cordage, along with fun and games. Guests will also have the opportunity to connect with and learn from California Native artists and demonstrators on-site for the special activation.


The Mómti Market is presented in conjunction with the Sacramento History Museum’s Mómtim Pewinan (River People), an exhibition guest curated by the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians’ Exhibits & Collections Department. The community is encouraged to explore the installation to learn about contemporary Nisenan culture and how today’s artists and culture bearers maintain the old ways through the practice of Traditional Ecological Knowledge.
