Poway is located in the state of California and a city in San Diego. Some artifacts were found around the bed of Poway Creek, such as arrowheads, spear points pottery, grinding stones, and others that indicate the presence of the early Diegueño. Various pictographs were also found that were used to adorn many of the boulders found in Poway, and modern dating techniques suggest that the paintings found dates to the 16th century or earlier. The original name given to the valley was derived from the Kumeyaay language that is used by the Kumeyaay people who inhabited the area for several hundred years before the Spaniards arrived and colonized the region. Traces of the Native Americans are still visible and remain in Diegueño.
