Wappo Indians

Through linguistics proof, these people in northwestern California known as Wappo Indians, are obviously Ojibway. Yuki People are closely related to Wappo Indians of California. In fact, a group of Yuki People left their lands where Eel River (it's where Wiyot People who we know are Ojibway live) is in northwest California and forced their way south. Several Athabascan Tribes lived around them which means they all are Ojibway. 1832's Edinburgh Encyclopedia details that Ojibway People gave rise to Athabascan People. It was from Eel River that Ojibway People forced their way south to San Francisco Bay. This was recent and not 1,000's of years ago. They settled at Napa Valley from Calistoga to Napa and San Pablo Bay. They also settled at Alexander Valley, between Cloverdale and Healdsburg. Evidently that happened in late 18th century. Mexican's established Mission San Francisco Solano in 1823.

According to an old Wappo man who detailed a bit of history of Alexander Valley, a brief war happened when he was a youngster or possibly about 10 to 15 years old. Exactly when he described this brief war is not known. Spanish Missionaries had established Mission San Francisco de Asis in 1776, where San Francisco, California is. So this brief conflict for control of Alexander Valley happened in late 18th century. Ojibway People had been following prophecy for ages and upon learning that those people mentioned in their prophecy, had invaded San Francisco Bay and established a ruse or Catholic Mission, they reacted quickly. All of northwest California was controlled by Ojibway People. That be from California's border with Oregon, south to Cleone which is adjacent to Pacific Ocean and inland for a considerable distance. Their southern most boundary inland during that time was possibly Lake Pillsbury. What happened in 1776 was a part of their so called Revolutionary War. Russia established Fort Ross in 1812 or during War of 1812. They were not friendly towards Indians. Both Latin and Slavic Peoples were allied with England during those conflicts. Shortly after learning whites had invaded San Francisco Bay, Ojibway leaders raised large numbers of their soldiers to force their way south. Their first goal was bringing Clear Lake under their control. That happened in late 18th century. Native tribes of Clear Lakes location, did not cause a great deal of trouble. That's from what little historical evidence is available. Ojibway leaders favored Clear Lakes southern shores. It allowed them to defend Clear Lake while they also forced their way towards San Francisco Bay. North and northeast of Napa Valley, were mountains that sheltered small valleys. Pope Valley is one of them. Ojibway Soldiers may have first brought Pope Valley under their control.

Compared to Napa Valley which had a very large population, Pope Valley was much smaller and so was it's population. Almost directly west of Pope Valley was Napa Valley's extreme north where Calistoga is located. To Ojibway leaders what is now Pope Valley was strategically important. At that time (late 18th century) Napa Valley possibly had a population of 100,000 or more native Indians, Chinese and Filipinos. To quickly bring Napa Valley under their control, Ojibway leaders knew they had to be brutal and do so quickly. They only needed to destroy a few towns to subjugate them. They probably brought Napa Valley under their control within a few weeks. They now had access to San Francisco Bay or where San Pablo Bay is situated. Their next goal was not bringing Sonoma Valley under their control. They had already accomplished their principle objective of gaining access to San Francisco Bay. Sonoma Valley had a smaller population than Napa Valley's. It extends from San Pablo Bay to Sonoma and Glen Ellen. Ojibway Soldiers did bring Glen Ellen's region under their control however. Nor did Ojibway leaders consider bringing Russian River (it's Indian name was Ashokana - Spanish named it San Ygnacio) Valley under their control. It's population was much higher than Napa Valley's population. Alexander Valley had a much smaller population and was next targeted by Ojibway leaders. We know how they created a situation that led to that brief war. Not long after Italians and Spanish Soldiers established their fort near San Francisco Bay, Ojibway's who had recently brought Napa Valley under their control, established a temporary camp north of Calistoga. After those Latins established their ruse they went exploring, especially to their south yet north of San Francisco Bay was very appealing to them. They noticed what appeared to be 3 valleys (Napa, Russian River and Sonoma) that had smaller populations than those native Indians, Chinese and Filipinos to their south had. Along southern San Francisco Bay, it's native Indian, Chinese and Filipino population was possibly between 500,000 to 1,000,000 during those times. However, they had more trouble with natives of Alexander, Napa, Russian River and Sonoma Valleys.

At a location just east of Alexander Valley's extreme south, was an area offering protection that Ojibway leaders utilized. It was 11.0 miles or 17.7 kilometers directly east of what is now Healdsburgh, California. They stationed many of their soldiers there and commenced friendly relations with Indians native to that region and Chinese and Filipinos also. They were not there for peaceful intentions. Ojibway Soldiers were instructed to gather large quantities of acorns and probably other food by their leaders and instructed to leave them while they returned to their camp. Though that Wappo man detailed those acorns being stolen by native Indians of Alexander Valley, in all likelihood Ojibway leaders gave them to them expecting them to be much impressed and willing to form a stronger friendship. That didn't happen. After their offer of an alliance was rejected, Ojibway leaders became enraged and organized their soldiers for an invasion of Alexander Valley. They attacked and destroyed one of their towns which terrified them. They were in fear and sent their negotiators to Ojibway's living in extreme southern Alexander Valley, about 5.0 miles or 8.1 kilometers directly east of Simi, California. They requested for a meeting and that presents be exchanged. They did not want war. Ojibway leaders told them they could stay in Alexander Valley, as long as if Ojibway People could move in. They rejected their offer and told Ojibway leaders they could have Alexander Valley. Ojibway leaders did not want Alexander Valley. They wanted their alliance.

Today, Wappo Indians live at Round Valley Reservation with their Yuki relations. Wappo Indians controlled a land area from Kelsey Creeks mouth at Clear Lake to a location where Lower Lake, California is then south to Hidden Valley Lake and further southeast to Pope Valley then to San Pablo Bay. Their territory then extended northwest to Glen Ellen then north to Mount Hood. From Mount Hood, Wappo Territory extended northwest to a location a couple of miles east of Healdsburg. All of Alexander Valley was Wappo Territory. Their territory then extended east to a location north of Cobb Mountain then followed Kelsey Creek to Clear Lake. Wappo Indians are Yuki. They have not lived in what are now Napa and Sonoma Counties for 1,000's of years. They originally lived further north where Lake Pillsbury is and further north of the place.
