Ms. Steinruck has been a THPO for her tribe since 2006. Finding that preservation is her passion, it has been a pleasure and honor for her to do this type of work for her community and her ancestors. With over 1200 tribal citizens the Tolowa Dee-ni’ people are nestled along the coast of Northern California. Surrounded by ancient redwood trees, wild rivers and the pristine Pacific Ocean, the land is plentiful. With ancestral lands that extent from the Sixes Rivers in Oregon to Wilson Creek in California many projects task her with a very busy workload. Ms. Steinruck participates in some of the work being done state-wide including being a part of the California THPO Coalition (CalTHPO).
