    Tribal History

    The Susanville Indian Rancheria is a federally recognized Indian Tribe that was established in 1923 for the benefit of homeless California Indians in Lassen County. There are four distinct tribes associated with the Susanville Indian Rancher: Maidu, Paiute, Pit River, and Washoe.

    On January 1, 2012, the Susanville Indian Rancheria compacted with the United States of America to support Tribal Self-Governance for the conduct and delivery of Health Services.

    Lassen Indian Health Center and its Health Board will strive to encourage and support the exercise of tribal self-governance of its individual members and to oversee the operation of the Health Center’s responsibilities of providing health care services for the spiritual, traditional, and cultural well-being of its patients.

    Our mission is quality, integrated medical, dental, and behavioral health care and related services to the Alaska Native/American Indians and residents of Lassen County.
