The public is invited to take a hike entitled “The Heart K Ranch from a Maidu perspective” 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 beginning of memory. Cunningham is a member of the Maidu Summit Consortium, composed of nine Mountain Maidu groups, with a vision of site protection and stewardship throughout the Maidu homeland.
