I think it’s important to remember our history – the inspirational, yes, but also the dark.  This is an example of the latter which ripples through our broader community to this day and will for many decades to come.  Click the photo for more from the Smith River Rancheria site.  Unfortunately as difficult as it is to accept, “holocaust” is appropriate or at the very least genocide – especially for our region.
