The Wiyot Today

{short description of image} In Rememberance -

Leona Wilkinson, Marian Seidner, her granddaughter Loreta Brown, and Cheryl Seidner. The Wiyot people and their friends hold a candlelight vigil every year at Indian Island near Eureka, Ca. They honor the memory of Wiyot members who were murdered in 1860 by Eureka settlers while participating in a religious ceremony. The Wiyot people are currently raising funds to buy back and restore part of Indian Island, which is the Center of their world.
