Wiyot Vigil

In honor of those who died at the 1860 Indian Island massacre, and in celebration of the ongoing Wiyot cultural regeneration, the annual Vigil is just concluding in Eureka. I couldn't make it this year but I've lit a candle here, and I'm with them in spirit. Jerry Rohde has a new piece on the 1860 events in this week's Journal, and here's a link to some of my past writing on those events (published in the San Francisco Chronicle) and subsequent ones.
