Revolts Against


Revolts Against Settlers

In 1855, a group of “vigilante” Indians (who were known as Red Cap Indians) initiated a revolt against settlers.


The Red Cap Indians were believed to be a mix of tribal groups who were fighting settlers. The Red Cap War nearly brought a halt to the non-Indians settlement effort.


The government was able to suppress the Red Cap Indians and regained control over the upper Yurok Reservation.
