Suscol Intertribal Council
Suscol Intertribal Council is a community-based, 501(c)(3) organization, founded in 1972 and reactivated in 1992, seeking to bring healing between the existing population and the people who historically inhabited Napa Valley and nearby counties. Since 1992, Suscol Intertribal Council has developed local educational outreach programs for public schools (K-14), community clubs, and other organizations. The organization continues to provide county-wide classes and annual events meant to bring the community together. Most classes and many events are free of charge and open to the public. Suscol Intertribal Council has developed a mentorship program to help California Native people make connections with agencies, foundations, and corporations that might be helpful to them. Contract development with organizations that seek to connect with California tribes or urban Indians is ongoing.
Suscol Intertribal Council is located in the Napa Valley, believed to be one of the oldest inhabited areas in North America. There is, however, no longer a land-based tribe in this county due to historical mass relocation and detrimental exposure to diseases.
