Inscription. The first inhabitants of Round Valley were the Yuki who resided here for thousands of years in harmony with their natural surroundings. In 1854, Europeans settlers entered the valley. In 1856, conflicts between settlers and Yuki escalated and to protect local tribes the entire watershed was designated a reservation. Additional tribes were subsequently forced on the property: Nomlacki, Wylaki, Lassik, Sinkyone, Pomo (including Cahto, Kabyeo, Shodakai, Yokayo, Shokawa, Shanel, Kashaya, and Habenapo amoung others), Wappo, Concow Maidu, Colusa, and Achumawi in 1864, the government reduced the reservation by four/fifths, to its current size.
