Wappo Indian Introduction

The Native American Indians who once inhabited the Napa Valley region in Northern California are called the Wappo Indians. With 10,000 years of ancestry in the region, it is no wonder that the name Napa Valley, which means "land of plenty" comes from the Wappo language. When the tribe was at its peak there were upwards of 8,000 members. What was once a tribe known for being peaceful, brave, and hardworking is now a tribe almost completely wiped out. The following facts and information will help you understand why this tribe has such an interesting heritage.
