Subsequent notices and actions needed to be completed in the process in additional correspondence with the White House initiated on October 20th, November 2nd, 4th, 9th, 12th and 13th.
Subject matter included but was not limited to verifying and vetting of the official status of participants, to questionnaires of tribal priorities and concerns, extensions to enroll and secured links to be kept confidential and only used by persons authorized by the White House.
The tribe was appreciative that President Joe Biden reinstated this policy that was originally initiated under President Barrack Obama, of bringing tribal leaders and all tribes together to better communication and understanding with the federal government, its various federal departments and his current administration.
Thank you Mr. President, Administration officials and all other participating tribes and their respective representatives.
The California Valley Miwok Tribe.
