There are many Sacred Sites beneath the pavement of San Francisco, under the buildings and the grass. San Franciscans walk on Sacred Sites and burial grounds every day in the City. These Sacred Sites, called Shellmounds, still exist and are honored by the Muwekma Ohlone and other Native Americans. This 1-mile walk will visit 3 Shellmounds. Meet at the steps on the west side of Yerba Buena Garden at Mission St.
