History

The Nomelaki (also spelled Nomlaki, Nome Lackee, etc.) traditionally lived in the central  part of the Sacramento Valley, in Tehama and Glenn Counties. They are the central division of the Wintun Tribe. From 1854 to 1863, they occupied their own reservation called the Nome Lackee Reservation, and for a time also lived on the Round Valley Reservation. Some of their descendants now reside on the Grindstone Rancheria[1].
