Wappo Indians (from Spanish guapo, ‘brave’). A small detached portion of the Yukian family of north California, separated from the Huchnom, the nearest Yuki division by 30 or 40 miles of Pomo territory. They lived chiefly in the mountains separating Sonoma from Lake and Napa Counties, between Geyers and Calistoga. A portion of them, called Rincons by Powers, occupied Russian River valley in the vicinity of Healdsburg.
