On October 10th, 2009, while they were in northern California on travel, Joseph Ramirez, Matt Vu and Ernest Ciballos paid a visit to the California Valley Miwok Tribe. They are currently affiliated with the University of California San Diego (UCSD). They are dear friends of the Tribe and are very active in helping the native community.
While they were here, many important topics were discussed and they made the Tribe aware of some of their current endeavors. Although the Tribe was sorry that Aries Yumul, another UCSD friend of the Tribe and the California Indian community, could not make it due to previous obligations, it was spiritually uplifting to be visited by these students whom have bright futures ahead and a genuine concern for California’s indigenous community.
