Hupa descendants have since been incorporated into mainly into the Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation and another tribes: Hoopa Valley Tribe (Hoopa, Humboldt County, Population 2013: 3,139) ( Hupa, Tsnungwe, Chimalakwe, Chilula, Whilkut)
The Hupa are a tribe located in the northwestern part of California. Other names for the Hupa include: Nabiltse, Natano, and Trinity Indians. The Hoopa Tribe were named after the six-mile long Hoopa Valley located on their land.
The Hoopa Valley Reservation, located in Northern California, covers 144 square miles of montane forest ranging in elevation from 320 to 5,000 feet.
The Hupas were fishing people. Hupa men caught salmon and other fish. They also sometimes hunted deer and small game. Hupa women gathered acorns and ground them into meal to bake bread with, as well as collecting berries, nuts, and other plants.
From the Yurok tribe they got canoes, dried seaweed, salt, and salt water fish. To get those they traded acorns, obsidian, and some inland foods, to trade with their coastal neighbor. Some things were purchased with dentalium shells which served as money of the northern California people.
The recitation of magical formulas was an important part of traditional Hupa religion. Shamanism was also common; shamans’ fees were paid in dentalium shells or deerskin blankets. Three major dances were held annually for the benefit of the community, as were spring and fall ceremonial feasts.
The Miwok people were decimated by the diseases brought by the invaders and subjected to atrocities. Following the short-lived Mariposa Indian War (1850) those who survived were forced on to various reservations.
Hupa (native name: Na꞉tinixwe Mixine꞉wheʼ, lit. “language of the Hoopa Valley people”) is an Athabaskan language (of Na-Dené stock) spoken along the lower course of the Trinity River in Northwestern California by the Hupa (Na꞉tinixwe) and, before European contact, by the Chilula and Whilkut peoples, to the west.

It was one of three new Mythical Pokémon introduced during Generation VI alongside Rock/Fairy type Diancie and Fire/Water type Volcanion. Hoopa is also an Event Pokémon, which means it can’t be found readily in-game (at least not without hacking) and is only available via distribution events.
While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, Hoopa has an alternate form, which it changes into by using the Prison Bottle. Its default form, Hoopa Confined, will then become the Psychic/Dark Hoopa Unbound.
Their traditional houses were made of redwood or cedar. Clothing: The men wore a breechclout of deerskin or of skins of small animals joined together, and leggings to their knees of painted deerskin. Their moccasins were made of deerskin with soles of elk hide.
