Yuki Indian Bands, Gens and Clans

Many tribes have sub-tribes, bands, gens, clans and phratry.  Often very little information is known or they no longer exist.  We have included them here to provide more information about the tribes.


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

Huititnom. The branch of the Yuki of N. California who held the s. fork of the middle fork of Eel r. (A. L. K.)
