The California Valley Miwok Tribe held the September USDA Food Distribution on Thursday, September 17th, 2020. At the time of this writing there are a reported 700+ fires currently raging in California. Along with the pandemic and the necessity of needing to wear masks in public outside, breathing in some areas is so labored it is almost intolerable.
At the time of this writing and unknown because of lack of reporting by most newsrooms is the current dilemma being faced by three of our fellow California Tribes.
North Fork Rancheria, Big Sandy Rancheria and Cold Springs Rancheria, have had mass evacuations and are under impending threats in their prospective areas due to various fires threatening their homelands.
We along with the other tribes that are in the Tule River Tribe’s USDA service area pray for these tribes relief from displacement and hardship due to their current circumstances and that they will be able to have their lives return to normal as quickly as possible with little to no long term damage being suffered.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
We would like to thank the USDA, the Tule River Tribe, the Tule River Food Distribution Department, those that we service for giving this program meaning and to Ronald Buckman and Naz for their personal commitment and service.
