Old Man Joaquin is depicted on one of Susanville’s murals. Pat Owens, Joaquin’s great-great-grandson, will discuss the family’s Paiute history at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 14 at 845A Joaquin St. at the Susanville Indian Rancheria.

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 — Due to a large response from the public, the location of the Discover Lassen County’s Native American heritage presentation by Pat Owens has been changed.
    The 7 p.m. Thursday, May 14 presentation by Owens, the great-great-grandson of Old Man Joaquin, will be held at 845A Joaquin St. at the Susanville Indian Rancheria.
    Sauweep Joaquin, Owen’s great-great-grandfather’s Paiute name, was born about 1830 and began life in the nomadic lifestyle of his tribe, roaming from Pyramid Lake to Eagle Lake.

As a young man, he was a scout for Chief Winnemucca and later became a head man, or sub-chief for his tribe. Perhaps he is best known as the only survivor of the June 1866 massacre at Papoose Meadows near Eagle Lake.
