The Chesbro family

The Chesbro family from the Tsnungwe tribe in Burnt Ranch.

The Trinity County Historical Society’s next monthly meeting and potluck on Saturday, Jan. 11, at the Congregational Church Parish Hall in Weaverville will feature Tsnungwe tribal member Danny Ammon of Burnt Ranch.

The Tsnungwe Tribe is centered in the lower Trinity area, related to the Hupa Indians in language and custom and sharing an Athabascan language. According to Ammon they have resided in the area for thousands of years. In his presentation he will describe the Tsnungwe people and their history. Ammon is an expert on Indian languages and has taught these at the Hoopa High School for many years.

The potluck will begin at 2 p.m. with the meeting and program following at 3 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend the potluck, the program or both.

If you would like to join the historical society, applications will be available. Plan to come by early and visit the museum. It’s the perfect place to do some shopping just for fun. It is also still not too late to purchase your 2020 calendar or the latest Trinity. All gift shop proceeds benefit the Trinity County Historical Society and also help keep the museum doors open.
