Rocklin is located in the state of California, a city in Placer County, and is close to Sacramento and in the northeastern part of Roseville within the Sacramento metropolitan area. Before the start of the Gold Rush in California, the city was occupied by the Nisenan Maidu that occupied both permanent villages and temporary summer houses that are located along the streams and rivers, which the miners sifted, dredged, sluiced, and dammed to remove the gold. A large part of explorers of American fur trappers crossed the Sacramento Valley in 1827, and the group saw the Maidu villages that live along the river banks. Since they were deprived of the traditional foodstuffs, hunting grounds, and homesites by the immigrants, and the Nisenan were among the earliest Indian tribes to disappear in California.
