SALINAN TRIBE - The Salinan Indians inhabited coastal and inland parts of what is now California for at least 10,000 years. Salinan peoples were divided into three regional groups: the Antoniano of the north, the Migueleno of the south, and the Playano of the coast. They were never a very populous nation and today they are centered in Monetery and San Luis Obispo counties. Salinas regard the eagle, the coyote, and the humming-bird as creators.
