One of the most important treaties in California history is the Treaty of Temecula. The Treaty of Temecula is one of 18 unratified treaties between the United States and California tribes. In our conversation with Sean Milanovich we learn that due to the Treaty of Temecula, Tribes were left vulnerable to abuse and subjugation at the hands of settlers and the policies of state lawmakers. Displacement of the tribes made it almost impossible to gather traditional foods and medicines, which took a toll on the health of Tribes. The Treaty of Temecula led to an ehtnic cleansing in which the Indian population plunged from approximately 150,000 in 1846 to around 30,000 in 1870. Notably Sean Milanovich connects the songs that open and close our podcast with the relationships with the enviornment.
