Hupa Indian Culture and History

As a complement to our Hupa language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Hupa tribe and their society. Please note that Hupas and other American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Hupa history is interesting and important, but the Hupa Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and the life and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Please contact us if you have a Hupa link to add.
