Tatzumbie DuPea
(July 26, 1849 - February 26, 1970)


Actress. Born to the Piute people in what is today Lone Pine, California, she was brought up by her grandmother whom she described as “skilled in herb healing.” They eventually traveled to what is today Pyramid Lake in an effort to avoid encroaching settlers whom she said she remembered were the cause of her mother's death. In time, she made her way back to California where she married and adopted the name Annie. She spent the rest of her life in Southern California. In 1934, she made her screen debut in an uncredited role in “Laughing Boy,” other films included “Buffalo Bill” (1944), “Across the Wide Missouri” (1951) all of which were uncredited. She was also occasionally a background extra in the television series “Death Valley Days,” also uncredited. She was featured in articles in "Desert Magazine," and as she passed her 100th year, numerous periodicals and newspapers nationwide.
