This item on the bucketlist gives me mixed emotions. Ishi was a man, placed in an extraordinary situation. In Oroville Ca, Ishi emerged from the woods around the Oroville lake around the 1900s. He was dubbed the last wild man, and even until his death he had thought he was the last survivor of his tribe. He taught a great deal to anthropology, though he only lived for five years after his emergence. So with his background that seems it could be made into a major movie, I somewhat expected a more awe inspiring plaque. Its a basic, concrete slab, with bronze engraving, somewhat hidden in the housing tracks of Kelly Ridge
