Tribal Relations

The Forest regularly consults with 20 federally recognized tribes for input into its annual program of work. Additionally, the Forest works in partnership with several of the tribes on various special projects.

Annually, the Forest participates in the Nome Cult Commemoration with the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians, Round Valley Indian Tribes, and the Mechoopda Tribe of Maidu Indians.The event honors and remembers those who were forced to march through the forest in 1863 to the Round Valley Reservation in Covelo, and to educate the public about the trail. The Mendocino National Forest worked together as a partner with the tribes to complete a brochure to document the history of the trail, and to install interpretive signs along the entire route through the forest.
