Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, June 20, 2012 13B ARTS and ENTERTAINMENT Hikers can learn about Maidu culture The public is invited to take a hike entitled "The Heart K Ranch from a Maidu perspec- tive" with Trina Cunningham Saturday, June 23. The outing will be held on the Heart K Ranch in Genesee Valley from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Cunningham's ancestors founded the Davis Ranch (now part of Feather River Land Trust's Heart K Ranch), where Trina grew up, and her Mountain Maidu ancestors have inhabited Genesee Valley from the be- ginning of memory, Cun- ningham is a member of the Maidu Summit Consortium, composed of nine Mountain Maidu groups, with a vision of site protection and stew- ardship throughout the Maidu homeland. The recently protected 900- acre Heart K Ranch in Cali- fornia's Genesee VaUey is a Sierra Nevada treasure, boasting scenic mountain beauty and a rich historical and cultural past. It is per- haps the most species-diverse property in the Feather River watershed, supporting 26 species of conservation con- cern. It is also of great impor- tance to the local Mountain Maidu people. The unique interpretive hike is sponsored by the Feath- er River Land Trust to raise awareness about Maidu histo- ry and culture. The Maidu In- dians of Genesee Valley are a federally unrecognized tribe. Trina Cunningham demonstrates stripping Indian hemp for cordage at a recent hike on the Heart K Ranch. She will lead the next hike Saturday, June 23. Photo courtesy Feather River Land Trust During the Gold Rush, land reservation treaties were left unratified, leaving the Maidu landless and in danger of los- ing cultural knowledge and practices. The Feather River Land Trust is working with Cunningham and others to protect and promote Maidu ac- cess to land and to incorporate Maidu traditional ecological knowledge into managing the Heart K Ranch. This summer, with a To- getherGreen grant from Toy- ota and National Audubon So- ciety, Feather River Land Trust is partnering with Plumas Audubon Society and the Maidu Summit Consor- tium to plan stewardship and restoration activities on the Heart K Ranch that incorpo- rate Maidu traditional ecolog- ical knowledge. There is no charge for the hike. However, the land trust will be accepting dona- tions to support the manage- ment of the Heart K Ranch and to compensate Cunning- ham for her time and exper- tise. The Feather River Land Trust is a private, nonprofit organization founded by res- idents of the Feather River region.
