The Wintu inhabit portions of Trinity, Tehama, Shasta and Siskiyou counties bordered on the north by the upper Trinity River Valley, Black Butte, and Mount Shasta and extending southward to Cotton wood Creek and the south fork of the Trinity River (Lapena 324). At the time that the first Europeans arrived in the area the Wintu occupied the foothills and mountains of the northern Sacramento Valley near present day Redding (Chase-Dunn, Clewett, and Sundahl).
