Huchnom Indians. A division of the Yuki of northern California, speaking a dialect divergent from that of the Round Valley Indians. They lived on South Eel river above its confluence with the middle fork of the Eel river, or in adjacent territories, and on the headwaters of Russian River in upper Potter valley. To the north of them were the Witukomnom Yuki, to the east the Wintun and on the other sides were Pomo tribes. The Pomo call them Tatu, the whites Redwoods, from Redwood Creek.
