Karok People

+Add origin to My Preferences

 

The Karuk people are an indigenous people of California, and the Karuk Tribe is one of the largest tribes in California.   Karuks are also enrolled in two other federally recognized tribes, the Cher-Ae Heights Indian Community of the Trinidad Rancheria and the Quartz Valley Indian Community.

Happy Camp, California, is in the heart of the Karuk Tribe's ancestral territory, which extends along the Klamath River from Bluff Creek (near the community of Orleans in Humboldt County) through Siskiyou County and into Southern Oregon.

The name "Karuk," also spelled "Karok," means "upriver people" or "upstream" people, and are called Chum-ne in Tolowa.
