Name one American Indian tribe in the US?
Cherokee, Lakota, Cheyenne, Creek, Iroquis, Huron, Hopi. The Costanoan Rumsen Carmel Tribe are 1 US Tribe. They met with French and Spanish Explorers in the 1600's and 1700's. They live in and around Monterey and Carmel. Father Serra set up his office at Mission Carmel and was very friendly to the Rumsen. Note Costanoan is a word the Spanish used to describe all coastal tribes. Ohlone was a derivation of Ohlon tribe near San Mateo. They were basically extinct by 1800 but many local tribes started using the term "OHLONE" in front of their Tribal name. The Rumsen were the only California tribe to use a recurve bow and gave us the word abalone.

What Indian tribe were taught in mission carmel?
They were of Shoshonean and Yuman stock. If you are speaking of "Carmel Mission in California" the main tribe was the Rumsen Indians of Monterey. There were no Yuman or Shoshoean there. From 1600 to 1770 they were the dominate tribe in the area. The Esselen were a smaller tribe that almost become extinct by early 1800s.
What Indian tribe lived at mission carmel?
The Rumsen Tribe was the majority of the Indians at Carmel. Carmel was built on Rumsen Land! Although some Esselen were at Carmel by the late 1790s they were near extinct. In fact the last Esselen speaker was a Rumsen Indian that spoke Rumsen, Esselen and Spanish. Carmel Mission was built on Rumsen Indian Land and was near their village of Tucutnut. The Spaniards called all Indians that lived on the coast Costanoans. The name Ohlone comes from a small tribal village named "Ohlon" near where Standford University is located today. Many tribes did not want to be called Costanoans so they used OHLONE as part of their name; especially after Ohlone College was built. In truth Costanoan and Ohlone are names made up to show a unity or similarity of Bay Area Tribes.
