Citizens for Healing is an all-volunteer group working to change the name of the town of Kelseyville to Konocti.
In 1882, the Board of Supervisors named the town "Kelseyville" after Andrew Kelsey. However, historic records reveal Kelsey enslaved, brutalized and murdered many local natives.
The unique name of Konocti evokes images of art, music, and recreation. It honors our beautiful mountain and our native people.
Changing the name of our town to Konocti has the approval of all seven Lake County Tribes.
Tune in to KPFZ 88.1 FM this morning (Monday Aug 15, 2022), 10am, if you can. Repeat show of Sarah Ryan interviewing Dr. Jeanine Pfeiffer regarding Genocide and Ecocide of the Pomos in Lake County. At 10:30 she reads her excellent essay. Well researched and developed with wisdom and compassion.
