"The Yuki (also known as Yukiah) are an indigenous people of California, whose traditional territory is around Round Valley, Mendocino County. Today they are enrolled members of the Round Valley Indian Tribes of the Round Valley Reservation. Yuki tribes are thought to have settled as far south as Hood Mountain in present-day Sonoma County."
