This 5-acre site in Poway seeks to preserve this important archaeological area where the Kumeyaay people lived about 1,000 years ago. Acorns were a primary food resource and this pic shows the milling area where acorns were ground into flour. After leaching out the bitter tannic acid with water, the resulting dough was heated to make “shawii” or acorn mush. Docents lead tours every Saturday (except the first Saturday of each month) from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
