The Tolowa resided in eight villages along or near the coast. There are currently ninety-four tribal members in the Elk Valley Rancheria, a combination of both Tolowa and Yurok Indians.
The Tribe has worked hard to bring prosperity to both the Elk Valley Rancheria, and surrounding region through providing employment opportunities, a wide variety of donations, community support and revenue. Tribal revenues are also invested in college education for tribal members, as well as early education programs for Native American children at the Elk Valley Head Start.
