The Salinan Native Americans lived in the central coast of California in the Salinas Valley. The tribe was said to be extinct by 1930, but they survived, and are currently in the process of applying for tribal recognition. The tribe was divided into two divisions, the San Antonio in the north, and San Miguel in the south.
