Resighini Rancheria

PO Box 529 – 177 Nepuey Road

Klamath, CA 95548


The Resighini Rancheria (“Tribe”) is seeking a qualified Contractor to perform data entry into an Indigenous Traditional Knowledge (ITK) Database. The Resighini Rancheria is a federally recognized Tribe of Yurok people, located on the far northern coast of California in Del Norte County, approximately forty (40) miles south of the Oregon border.

The Tribe has a database tool that was created to house Indigenous Knowledge for use by the Tribe and Tribal citizens in the preservation, continuance, and revitalization of Yurok cultural lifeways and environmental stewardship throughout ancestral territory. This database is designed to securely hold ethnographic, archival, and other materials that come directly from the community and/or have been repatriated back from outside institutions. It allows for the creation of derivative entries describing cultural practice, relationships between people, non-human beings, places, and bibliographic information. It is also designed to act as a repository for digital copies of primary source material and features some mapping capabilities. The intended outcomes of this work include helping preserve and restore traditional stewardship practices, set measurable benchmarks within the Tribe to better illustrate climate impacts, reinforce Tribal ownership and agency over these data, and support contemporary tribal efforts to transmit and steward traditional knowledge.

A Contractor is needed to assist with the analysis of ethnographic and archival materials and related data entry into the ITK Database. The database is hosted at the Tribal Office in Klamath, CA, thus the Contractor would need to work in person, although remote options may be considered.

Any inquiries regarding the Tribe or this invitation should be directed to:
