From KEET in California: Indian Island has long been the center of the Wiyot tribe’s spiritual universe. In 1860, however, settlers from Eureka paddled across Humboldt Bay in the middle of the night to massacre women and children on the island who’d come out to conduct the World Renewal Ceremony. The city voted in December 2018 to finally return the island to the Wiyot people.
