Modoc Culture and History

As a complement to our Modoc language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Modoc tribe and their society. The emphasis of these pages is on Modocs and other American Indians as living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Modoc history is interesting and important, but the Modoc 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 issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Please contact us if you have a Modoc link to add.
