The California Valley Miwok Tribe (located at 10601 N. Escondido PL, Stockton, CA, as listed in the Bureau of Indian Affairs’ BIA/DOI Spring 2011 Tribal Leaders Directory), a federally recognized tribe eligible to receive and distribute services from the federal government – on Monday, September 12th, 2011, conducted the USDA food distribution at the tribal government offices, located at 10601 N. Escondido PL, Stockton, CA. This program serves the Native American community which resides within the California Valley Miwok Tribal service area. If by chance you reside within an existing service area of a federally recognized tribe that currently does not offer a service such as this, the California Valley Miwok Tribe invites you to apply through us and if you qualify, we will help you to address your family’s nutritional needs.
On hand to help in this month’s distribution, were San Joaquin Native American Veterans Lodge Commander Richard “Windfeathers” Muniz and Lodge members Mike Trujillo and David Romero. Also assisting, was friend of the Tribe and Vietnam Marine Corps veteran, Freddie M. Canez. The Tribe is honored that these proud veterans make the time month after month to assist us in servicing the local Native American community.
Just this month, the San Joaquin Native American Veterans Lodge, whom the Tribe partners with, was honored by other organizations with whom they also provide donations and services and we the Tribe, along with the San Joaquin Native American Veterans Lodge, want to give a heartfelt thank you to these organizations for the acknowledgement of the contributions and services that they receive from these proud Native American veterans whom assist fellow Native Americans, Native relatives, Native veterans and families alike. The San Joaquin Native American Veterans Lodge members are grateful for the thoughts and prayers that have been bestowed upon them from these public service organizations:
Vallejo Inter-tribal Council
Freedom Excursion Floridia
Friendship House of San Francisco
Eagles Emblems Inc (KIA / NAKIA)
The Tribe at this time would like to thank the San Joaquin Native American Veterans Lodge for their September donation to this program, to the Tule River Food Distribution staff and to the United States Department of Agriculture for this month’s delivery.
