Beginning in the 1920s, another group of Native people found their way to the Bay Area. They were migrants from the Acoma and Laguna tribes of the Southwest. When they arrived, they took up an unusual living arrangement: in boxcars, parked on the dead ends of the city&rsquo;s railroad tracks.</em></p> Tue, 28 Feb 2012 22:45:57 +0000 Holly Kernan 6632 at http://kalw.org Revisiting Richmond's boxcar village
