The Yuki are a Native American tribe from the zone of Round Valley, in what today is part of the territory of Mendocino County, Northern California. Divisions of this tribe are thought to have settled as far south as Hood Mountain. In their language, the Yuki called themselves Ukomno'm The name Yuki is, in fact, an adaptation of the Wintu term "yuki" used to designate them by their neighbors, the Nomlaki, and from which the white explorers learned of their existence circa 1850.
