Adventurous Days
In The Open

In the vast wilderness and solitude of the Sierras, native Maidu Indian inhabitants once occupied the beautiful land by the Feather River. Tam-say-we, the Maidu word for Feather River was once a place where wildlife thrived, many deer lurked and quail and grouse were plentiful.

Maidu BasketKnown as Maidu Indian Country, this area was home to a tribe of California Indians who were skilled in the art of basketry. This entire region extended with large numbers of well-beaten trails, connecting the different villages and hunting and fishing grounds. Trade routes sprawled throughout this territory, allowing contact with neighboring tribes.

As part of our heritage, Feather River Inn celebrates the culture of these great Maidu Indians. And as you travel upon this land, we bid you u-koy, good journey.
