Ohlone people are a Native American people from the north and central California coast.[1] They lived in small villages, and they hunted deer and other animals.[2] Ohlone groups who lived near the shore ate shellfish too. After eating them, they put their shells in mounds called shellmounds. They also buried the dead in shellmounds.[3]
