Native Homelands

The Upper Feather River Watershed is the homeland of the Mountain Maidu. The eastern and south eastern region of the watershed also have deep cultural significance to the Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California, the Northern Paiute Tribe, and the Nisenan Tribe. Borderlands of this large and diverse watershed are home to several other tribes.
