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 Tuesday, November 15th, 2011, held this month’s food distribution. This distribution saw new faces, which expanded our existing program in helping individuals of the Tri-Miwok Consortium and also included the participation of the Tule River Food Distribution Director, Mr. Richard McDarment.
The San Joaquin Native American Veterans Lodge was unable to attend due to the many prior commitments that they made in reverence of Veterans Day and November being recognized as National Native American Heritage month. The veterans did however supply the distribution with their generous donations the prior week, to make sure that no needy family went without.
