Yurok Tribe | California

Meet Legacy Leader and Future Legacy Leaders of the Yurok Tribe – Abby Abinanti, Dr. Blythe George, and Jessica Carter. Abby, Blythe, and Jessica are working together to exchange their own Indigeous knowledge and traditions of the Yurok peoples, while also encouraging others within the community – especially young women – to do the same. More specifically, they are using teachings from the Yurok canoe to craft models for family reunification and traditional forms of justice, all with the idea of restoring Tribal sovereignty of Tribal information.
