Native American Records

California became a state in 1850, ceded by Mexico by the treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo, concluded February2, 1828, and proclaimed July4, 1848. From then until statehood, California had a military government until 1849, and then a local civil government. It never had a territorial form of government.

Gold was discovered in 1850 and rush of people over the land changed for ever the Indians way of life.
