"Sumeg," the Yurok word for the Patrick's Point area, is home to Sumeg Village. Sumeg Village, located in Patrick's Point State Park, is still used by the Yurok Community in educating their youth about the history and culture of its people. The site features a sweat house, dance house and more.
While at Patrick's Point, you can walk around the grounds and explore some of the rooms. It's a pretty cool experience that needs to be treated with respect.
