DID YOU KNOW?

Perhaps the most famous resident of Oroville was Ishi, a Yahi Indian who was found in a local corral on Aug. 29, 1911, apparently after wandering into town from a hiding place in the wild. He is believed to be the last survivor of the Yahi tribe, as well as the last Native American to have lived primarily in the absence of white men. The Lake Oroville Visitor's Center features an exhibit on Ishi's Yahi culture and his years in American society, and the neighboring community of Yuba-Sutter hosts an annual Ishi Tournament for archery.
