Jan Wortman and her family bought the historic Requa Inn in 2010. Requa (“Rek-Woi” in Yurok) is the place of a traditional Yurok village from where Jan’s family and ancestors come. This is the most special place in the world for her. Jan runs the inn with help from her husband, Marty; son Thomas; daughter Geneva and husband Reweti Wiki and their kids, Maia, Keeya, and Ani.
