Emigrant: The Other White Meat?

I came across this delicately-worded plaque commemorating the Donner Party at a snowy highway rest stop on a recent road trip on Route 80, over the Donner Pass. Notice that it says many died…but not all. No mention of how the survivors survived. Also, “emigrant” is misspelled.

Sacred mountain to the Winnemem Wintu and other local tribes, as seen from north of Redding, CA. Stays frozen year-round; still snowy and white in July.
