Manzanita and Ghost Lamprey Eels on the Banks of the Trinity River, Hoopa Valley Reservation, digitally printed photo collage, 2000

"Within (the Hupa) land were fields of grass; groves of pine, madrone and oak; streams which supported many fish, birds, and animals; and mountain forests of pine, yew, fir, and oak filled with wildlife. The Hupa used all of these resources, but they made their homes in villages beside the Trinity River, in the valley from which they took their name."
