A aboriginal person of the upper Klamath lake region. They used to live in small groups much like the "sets" or "cliques" in modern urban areas. Usually much bigger physically and historically more violent than other tribes. Like the Filipino people they had much fun killing the invading Spaniards...this is why the Spanish names of cities stop in the Northern California and Southern Oregon area. They have a love-hate relationship with their literal cousins the Modoc. (Modoc are famous for the Modoc War-Captain Jack aka. Kintpuash killed off U.S soldiers until he got bored and turned himself in)

WARNING-PISSING OFF A KLAMATH IS NOT A BRIGHT IDEA!
