The Tsnungwe (South Fork Indians, South Hupa, South Fork Hupa) are a Native American people settled along the Trinity River, South Fork of the Trinity River and New River, in Trinity and Humboldt County in California.

The Tsnungwe are a peaceful people. Their lives are focused on family, tradition, and the land. The land has provided the Tsnungwe with salmon, rainbow trout, black tail deer, and other local animals and plants. They have survived the encroachment of the Hupas, as well as the invasion of European and American settlers, through tight-knit family groups that continue to practice the morals and native traditions of their forebears.

The Tsnungwe language is part of the Athabascan language group of North American native languages.
