This quilt is about how Northern California history is inextricably intertwined with rivers and their geologic bounty. “Eureka” means “I have found it!” and is the motto of my state. It harkens back to the Gold Rush which changed California in extraordinary ways. While sparking unheard of economic growth in California and the entire country, the Gold Rush also meant devastation for Native residents and the environment.
