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, August 22nd, 2011, in response to a letter received at the CVMT tribal offices from the Round Valley Reservation tribal offices, CVMT attended a scheduled meeting at the Round Valley Reservation to address issues raised within the letter and other issues of concern common both to tribes.

The journey to the Round Valley Reservation is the very scenic Highway 162, and at the summit of the winding mountain-top road, one views a very picturesque valley, in which the Consolidated Tribes of Round Valley call home.

Upon arriving, tribal officials were immediately brought into the Council’s chambers and after brief introductions, the meeting commenced with both tribes exchanging detailed information over past and on-going activities that not only adversely impact day-to-day tribal governmental operations and programs, but the very quality of life and services of the members that these programs are designed to serve.

As a result of this meeting, the Round Valley Indian Tribes and the California Valley Miwok Tribe have pledged mutual support for one another in current and all future issues that were raised, and the California Valley Miwok Tribe has now joined with the Round Valley Indian Tribes and others, in a growing consortium of tribes that wish to have a stronger voice in which to strengthen their tribal sovereignty and expand and protect their services to their tribal people, which this tribe feels is possible because of our own experiences under the Obama administration.

We would like to thank our gracious hosts of Round Valley Indian Tribes a sovereign nation of confederated tribes located in Round Valley, Covelo, California, 95428. Ph #: (707) 983-6126 or visit them at
