SISOCHI GALLERY

The Yosemite Native American Art Gallery is an on-line presentation of
Yosemite's famous Sisochi Gallery.





THE SISOCHI GALLERY (seen here) was founded in 1971 by Letty Barry. The gallery is built upon the site of Major James Savage's original 1849 trading post. Major Savage was the anglo man who history records as the discoverer of Yosemite Valley. He was the first and positively worst head of what has been a 147 year old enterprise. Major Savage ruthlessly exploited native tribes and pushed timber, mining and trapping industries into what had been a culturally and environmentally pristine area. The native Miwok tribe had lived peacefully in the Yosemite area for an estimated eight thousand years. Sisochi is the Miwok place name for the winter village which occupied the same site.

Letty Barry has dedicated the gallery to helping educate visitors of Yosemite about the rich native culture. She also aims to correct the many injustices and misunderstandings which originated in the gold rush era. This gallery staff actively solicits and supports Native American artisans in their efforts to preserve and regain native culture, skills and socioeconomic stability.

The highly trained and knowledgeable gallery staff chooses from the finest available contemporary and antique Native American art in order to display the highest quality items. Each individual item is fully guaranteed by the gallery to be authentic and accurately identified.

We also urge visitors to the Yosemite/Gold Country area to visit our
physical site: the Sisochi Gallery. We have constantly strived to present authentic organic art--this in the face of the growing trend of overly-stylized production pieces. Additionally, with hundreds of books, the Gallery is an important resource for those interested in Native American Art. Here is some vital information about the Gallery:
