In a village, the roundhouse served as the center of ceremonial and social life. Constructed in 1974, the Chaw S? roundhouse continues this tradition. With its door facing the east, towards the rising sun, four large oaks are the focal point of this sixty foot in diameter structure. Today, ceremonial roundhouses are the most significant architectural manifestation of the continuing Miwok spiritual heritage.

California Registered Historical Landmark No. 1001, an element of the thematic designation, California Native American Ceremonial Roundhouses.

Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with the Sierra Native American Council and the Chaw S? Association, October 14, 1974.
