Shasta Scout

Indigenous Affairs

The area now known as Shasta County consists of the ancestral lands and waterways of a dense population of Indigenous communities including the Nor-El-Muk Wintu Nation, the Redding Rancheria,  the Winnemem Wintu Tribe, the Wintu Tribe of Northern California and the Pit River Tribe.  Understanding local Native peoples’ histories, traditional ecological knowledges, and world views are essential to forging our community’s future.  We are committed to comprehensive and thoughtful coverage of Indigenous communities and perspectives.
