Each release in the Native America the Beautiful series contains a reference usually tied to the geographical location depicted on the coin. For the California issue, that reference is Uzumate, which is the origin of the word Yosemite. It translates to Grizzly Bear, since these creatures were common to the region. The Ahwahnechee people who lived there were called Uzumates by the white settlers because they possessed the necessary skills for killing these bears. Today, the region is known as Yosemite National Park.
All 2022 1 oz Native America the Beautiful California Coins have been produced under the monetary jurisdiction of the Mesa Grande Sovereign Nation.
