Wiyot Placename Video

Video Production

The video is the product of a fellowship from the Institute of Museum and Library Studies (IMLS), the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums (ATALM), and the Oklahoma Department of Libraries. In it, you will learn the native Wiyot names for several prominent sites in Wiyot territory, such as Humboldt Bay, Eel River, Eureka, etc. Wherever possible, I have included audio of native Wiyot speakers saying these names, and I discuss the meanings and the history behind each place name.
