We live in the Siskiyou Mountains along tributaries of the Klamath River from Indian Creek that runs through Happy Camp, east to Fall Creek that runs through the town of Copco. We hunt sheep, elk, and deer and we depend on runs of coho salmon. We are friends with the Karuk people; the Konomihu, the Chemafeko, and the Okwanuchu live among us. Fur trappers brought us malaria and smallpox. We had no defense against their diseases. Men who wanted gold from our creeks took everything and shot us when they could. Before we were six thousand; then we were only one hundred.
