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, April 16th, received this month’s food distribution ahead of schedule due to a special undertaking and commitment by the Tule River Food Distribution Department to fulfill this month’s delivery to CVMT’s disenfranchised tribal members and those in dire need whom we service.
With the need of this month’s delivery being so great and recipients scheduled for this month’s delivery being in limited numbers, allowed this distribution to be serviced by the Tule River Food Distribution staff truck. The Food Distribution Department of the Tule River Tribe undertook this endeavor, knowing that the Tribe currently being denied any of its other rightly resources, is temporarily unable to address any unforeseen shortfalls that would negatively impact those whom depend upon it for assistance. All previously scheduled deliveries are set to begin again by next week and have only been delayed due to personal illness within the department.
At this time, the California Valley Miwok tribal members and recipients of this tribal program would like to thank the Tule River Tribe, the Tule River Food Distribution staff and specifically its director, Mr. Richard McDarment and staff members Patricia and Jesus Solas for this very concerned act in addressing the dire needs of this tribe’s members and those whom we service.
