Shasta County, California is one of the original counties of the state, created in 1850 when California became a state. Shasta County initially contained more territory; however parts became Siskiyou County and Tehama County in 1852 and 1856 respectively. Mount Shasta, the 14,179 foot potentially active volcano in neighboring Siskiyou County, is the namesake of Shasta County. The name “Shasta” was derived from the native “Shastan” peoples who originally populated the area. Interestingly, the term “Shastan” was never used by the Shastan themselves, who instead called themselves the “Kahosadi.” Shasta County was originally populated by the Quartz Valley Indian Community including the Klamath, Karuk (Karok), and Shasta (Chasta) peoples.
