: My question is....who were the first people to settle in San Francisco??

"Over ten thousand years ago, before the waters of the Pacific Ocean passed through the gap now spanned by the Golden Gate Bridge and filled the interior valley-basins, the ancestors of the present-day Muwekma Ohlone [Native American Indians] along with the neighboring tribal groups had established their homes within this changing landscape [San Francisco Bay Area]."
