Ukiah (Yokiah), Wappo, Pomo, Salan Pomo, Kianamaras, Redwood (Whilkut), and other Indians on the Mendocino Reservation.


The Mendocino Subagency was established in 1855 and was located in Mendocino County about 50 miles south of Cape Mendocino. It operated until 1860 when the reservation was assigned to the Northern District. In 1864, the Indians on this reservation moved to Round Valley and the Mendocino Reservation was abandoned.
