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 Sunday, December 18, 2011, traveled throughout the local valley and foothills bringing food, clothing and Christmas toys to families both tribal and to those whom assist the Tribe and support its programs, in an attempt to address needs that under the current circumstances, remain unmet.

Again this season, as the Tribe has endured for these many years, the Tribe without its funding has taken it upon themselves to utilize the Internet in selling personal items, depleting personal bank accounts and using their unemployment subsidies in an attempt to address the shortfalls that have been placed upon this tribe circumventing its ability to fulfill its responsibilities to its recognized membership and their families. At this time, with no assistance or funding made available to the Tribe, this moment in time shall forever shine through as the strongest example of what self reliance is truly all about.
