The Alliance for Felix Cove aims to re-Indigenize the ancestral homelands of the Felix family, the last Tamalko family to live on the western shores of Tamal-liwa (Tomales Bay) at what is known as Laird’s Landing. Felix family members would call this Felix Cove, to recognize their ancestral Coast Miwok homesite.
The Alliance for Felix Cove advocates for the protection and restoration of the last remaining 19th century Coast Miwok-built home at Felix Cove in the Point Reyes National Seashore, to honor the lives of the Felix family. The Alliance also envisions establishing a living history center and garden at Felix Cove, to teach visitors about how the Felix family lived sustainably on Tomales Bay, and how visitors can learn to live with nature by developing an awareness of Indigenous ecological knowledge and practices.
“The land is calling us, and I'm trying to bring Native people, relatives, children, and grandchildren back to this place to heal.”
