Pre-contact distribution of Wintun peoples

Wintun (also Wintuan, Wintoon) is the name generally given to a group of related Native American tribes who live in Northern California, including the Wintu, Nomlaki, Patwin and Southern Patwin tribes. Their range is from approximately present-day Lake Shasta to San Francisco Bay, along the western side of the Sacramento River to the Coast Range. Each of these tribes speak one of the Wintuan languages.
