Huchnom Tribe

The Huchnom Indians were a small tribe of Northern California, relatives of the Yuki tribe. Their language was never well recorded, but was clearly similar to Yuki, and was probably a Yuki dialect or a closely related language. The Huchnom no longer exist as a distinct tribe. Most Huchnom people were moved to the Round Valley Reservation along with members of many other California tribes in the 1800's, where their descendants still live today.
