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.


The next full meeting will be on February 12. 2023, at Lorna Sue Sides' house in Kelseyville, but there will be a series of mini-meetings before then.
