The San Dieguito people were present in San Diego from about B.P. 8000 to about B.P. 3000. Their culture is named for the location where they were first identified by archaeologists - along the San Dieguito River. They are thought to have been big game hunters associated with the North American Paleoindian tradition, and many of their sites are found in coastal areas, on knolls overlooking rivers, which would have provided vantage points for spotting game. Other sites are found in areas rich with stone tool making resources. San Dieguito artifacts often include beautifully crafted knives, spear points, and scraping tools.
Only a trace of San Dieguito presence is found in Mission Trails Regional Park.
