Eileen Clifford

Eileen Clifford, survivor of the Bridge Gulch Massacre.

The Trinity County Historical Society’s first program for the season will be presented at the Trinity Congregational Church Parish Hall in Weaverville on Saturday, Nov. 9.

Nor Rel Muk Wintu Tribal Chairman John Hayward will examine the history of his people, the Nor Rel Muk. As a tribe that has been here for thousands of years, their history is rich and long. Hayward will tell of the contact with whites starting in the 1850s to this day.

The program will start with an Indian prayer, followed by a potluck lunch at 2 p.m. Bring a dish to share if you would like. Hayward’s presentation will begin at 3 p.m. The public is invited to come and enjoy the meeting, potluck and program. You do not need to be a member to attend. If you would like to join the historical society, applications will be available.

For more information you may contact the museum at 623-5211 or visit www.trinitymuseum.org.
