 Culturally, our people are known as great fishermen, eelers, basket weavers, canoe makers, storytellers, singers, dancers, healers and strong medicine people. 

The Klamath-Trinity River is the lifeline of our people because the majority of the food supply like salmon, sturgeon and candlefish are offfered to us from these rivers.   Also important to our people are the foods which are offered from the ocean and inland areas such as mussels, seaweed, acorns, deer, elk, berries and teas.  These foods are essential to pur people health, wellness and religious ceremonies.
