Tribe of Talako - The Tribe of Talako started in 1949 at Lake Valley Camp rented from the Pacific Gas and Electric Company at their Lake Valley Reservoir south of Yuba Gap, CA. There were 3 chiefs that year Charles Massen, Jim Dagnall and Richard Peters.

In 1950 the camp used was at the new Camp Marin Sierra. The two chiefs that year were Ted Davis and Donald Keller.

The Tribe of Talako activities continued at Camp Tamarancho, the Marin Council's local training camp at Fairfax, CA and at its summer camp at Camp Marin Sierra, at Yuba Gap, CA until 1958 when it became Talako Lodge, No. 533.
