Hike: Heart K from a Maidu Perspective
Join Trina Cunningham, a member of the Mountain Maidu community for this soul-stirring and informative hike on FRLT's beautiful Heart K Ranch in Genesee Valley. Picnic lunch provided!
Saturday, June 11, 10am-2pm
Trina's ancestors founded the Davis Ranch, where Trina grew up, and her Mountain Maidu ancestors have inhabited Genesee Valley from the beginning of memory.
Trina also served on the FRLT board that took action to purchase the 884-acre Heart K Ranch (including the Davis Ranch), protecting the land forever.
Through its Maidu Land Stewardship Partnership, FRLT is working with Trina and others to ensure Maidu access to land and to incorporate Maidu traditional ecological knowledge into managing the Heart K.
