The California Valley Miwok Tribe, as a member tribe of the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), was invited to attend the grand opening of the Embassy of Tribal Nations at their new location at 1516 P. Str. NW, Washington, D.C.
The Tribe sent Tribal Chairperson Silvia Burley, along with Tribal Secretary/Treasurer Rashel Reznor and Tribal Attorney Saba Bazzazieh, to participate in the festivities. The new location has been made possible by the efforts of NCAI, with the assistance of member tribes and various individuals, whom recieved awards of appreciation during the ceremonies in recognition that without their support, this day would not have been possible.
NCAI is a strong voice for Native American tribes and the California Valley Miwok Tribe is proud to be a supporting member. This marks the beginning of Native American activities that the Tribe will be attending all week-long in Washington, D.C., and the Tribe was very happy to be on hand to experience this momentous occasion, with all of the other attendees that were able to participate.
