UCLA professor writes history of Native American genocide in California 

Few people outside Del Norte know about the 1853 slaughter of Tolowa at Yontocket (Yan’-daa-k’vt) on the south bank of the Smith River. Yet with a death toll as high as 600, it stands as one of the largest mass killings of Native Americans in U.S. history.
