A history of the canyon, Estanislao, and the Native rebellion in the 1800s

Status: Live River
By: Martin Blake
Date: 1980

This is likely by Martin Blake, a part of possibly a larger document. It recounts the history of Native Americans (Miwoks) in the area of the Stanislaus River, and has an account of Chief Estanislao and his rebellion against the Mexican and Spanish in the 1870s. Some of this information is disputed by others – a major research effort on Estanislao by Dorothy Mutnick is at the Bancroft Library . More information Chief Estanislao is here.
