Heritage

Feather River Tribal Health was founded in 1994 by three sponsoring tribes of the Maidu people. Oroville is part of the ancestral home of the Maidu people thats spans parts of North-Eastern California.

The descendants of these people are strong and resilient. The Maidu of today walk on two roads. The road of modern society and science, and the living history and ancient legacy.

With Pride and Respect they welcome you to their clinic.
