Wappo mural dedicated in downtown Napa

Desirae Harp (second from left) of the Mishewal Wappo Tribe of Alexander Valley leads more than 30 spectators in a song introducing them to the tribal language during a ceremony Sunday afternoon dedicating a Wappo-themed mural in the 1400 block of Second Street.

The 14-by-60-foot artwork by Morgan Bricca, “Tuesday Morning, 1720: Mishewal Wappo, Napa Valley,” depicts tribe members amid the habitat of the valley’s pre-European era.

West Pueblo Partners, owner of the commercial building, spent about $30,000 on the mural and the wall preparation, according to Michael L. Holcomb, a principal in the company.
