In our native Patwin language, ‘Séka’ means ‘blue,’ and in selecting Séka Hills as the name for our line of premium tribal products, we honor the blue hills that overlook our homeland in Northern California’s Capay Valley. For thousands of years, our people have lived in the oak forests, rolling hills and grasslands of Northern California’s Capay Valley, tending the natural resources and the land that is home to our culture, history, and traditions.
Our Tribe is known as the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, meaning “Home by the Spring Water.” As we strive to preserve our language and the legacy of our ancestors, we continue to grow as a people and tend this fertile valley that is home to our culture, history and tradition.
The Tribe looks at decision-making through a lens of good environmental stewardship throughout all of our undertakings, honoring the legacy of our ancestors who lived as part of the landscape by protecting and preserving the natural balance in their environment.
As the historical inhabitants of the Capay Valley, our homeland is at the heart of our culture and heritage. We maintain the bond our ancestors formed with this land through continued efforts to preserve and protect it for future generations. Today, with more than 24,000 total acres in production, we own one of the most diverse farming operations in Yolo County and are one of a few tribes with expanding agriculture in California.
