History

The Nome Lackee Agency was established as a subagency in 1854, and became a full agency in 1856. It was located on the Nome Lackee Reservation on the western side of the Sacramento Valley, about 20 miles west of Tehama. After 1856, Nome Lackee Agency was also responsible for the Nome Cult farm located about 60 miles southwest of Nome Lackee. Nome Lackee Agency operated until 1860, when the California agencies were discontinued. The Indians under its jurisdiction were assigned to the Northern District. Most of the Indians had left Nome Lackee by 1862. Nome Cult became known as the Round Valley Reservation and was the main reservation for the Indians in the Sacramento Valley.
