Wiyot Tribe

Log Number: MN-251981-OMS-22

The Wiyot Tribe will develop maps of the place names of ancestral territory in the native Wiyot language of Soulatluk. Utilizing mapping and analytics software, a public-facing map will contain place names and locations that are not culturally sensitive, while a separate Tribal-use version will contain all documented place names. Focused archival and field research to recover these place names and accurately locate them within ancestral lands will result in published brochures and large format printed maps for exhibition. The maps will serve as an ongoing resource for Tribal members to reclaim and care for their language and ancestral lands as well as for residents of the ancestral Wiyot territory to learn about Wiyot land stewardship, culture, and the Soulatluk language.
