DIXON HISTORICAL SOCIETY LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
Since time immemorial, the land where Dixon and it's surrounding areas is located has been the home of the Wintun Tribal people, also known as Patwin. Today, there are three federally-recognized Wintun tribes: Cachil Dehe Band of Wintun Indians of the Colusa Indian Community, Kletsel Dehe Band of Wintun Indians and Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation. We are honored and grateful to be here today on their traditional lands. The Dixon Historical Society is committed to recognizing and celebrating the culture and language of the Wintun tribal people.
