2. Ishi and 8 Northern Tribes

Author/historian Geoge Emanuels (A Mid-California Illustrated History) begins this program addressing the dishonorable actions against Native American populations by many explorers and settlers; then the author/historian focuses on the positive legacy left by Native Americans. He introduces us to Ishi, the last known survivor of the Yana people of California. Ishi, which means "man" in his native tongue, was the name given to California's last surviving Indian by anthropologist Alfred Kroeber, after he was discovered in Oroville, on August 29, 1911. Also George helps us better understand the differences of the Yurok, Karok, Hupa, Maidu, Wintun, Patwin and Pomo tribes. 00/10DE Closed-Captioned IJSCA 15 min.
