Her company takes its name from the Mayacamas mountains, which shadow the nearby landscape. The mountain chain is believed to take its name from a Yuki Native American tribe on its west slope. The Yukian Wappo village known as Maiya’kma was located one mile south of present day Calistoga. We adopt the mountain range as our namesake with respect for its significance to the people who live in its presence now and to those who have for millennia before us.
