The Potter Valley Tribe is a federally recognized tribe of Pomo people in Mendocino County, California. They were previously known as the Little River Band of Pomo Indians and Potter Valley Rancheria of Pomo Indians of California.
The Potter Valley Tribe's reservation is the Potter Valley Rancheria, which is 10 acres (40,000 m2) large. 138 tribal members live on the reservation. The Rancheria is situated in the western slope of Potter Valley, just south of Centerville, California.
In the early 20th century, the Rancheria was a village of 11 houses with 50 residents. They came from all villages all over the valley, including the Yukian Huchnom band. The Methodist Episcopal church maintained a village school for the reservation.
