Tomo-Kahni State Historic Park

Phone: (661) 724-1206

Address: Tehachapi, CA 93561




This park, created in 1993, preserves the integrity of the unique site of Tomo-Kahni, or "Winter Village," a village occupied by the Kawaiisu people. The location was likely selected for its ideal temperature and resources. The Kawaiisu migrated from the Great Basin and made the Tehachapi their home for two to three thousand years. The Kawaiisu are noted for their intricate and colorful finely woven baskets. Tomo-Kahni is available to the public by weekend tour only during the spring and fall months due to the sensitive nature of the site.
