The California Valley Miwok Tribe – located at 10601 Escondido Place, Stockton, CA, 95212 – greatly appreciated a hand-signed response addressed to our Chairperson, Silvia Burley, in regards to a special holiday poem penned by her to President of the United States Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and their family. The poem was of inspiration and hope. Chairperson Burley and the Tribe are happy that it was well received.

The very fact that the president signed this response to our little, landless tribe is conclusive that he acknowledges the meek as well as the mighty and the Tribe is overwhelmed by the re-affirmation of our chairperson by the president and the White House and by the high regard that he has continually shown for her. The Tribe thanks the President of the United States, Barack Obama, and the White House staff for the optimism that correspondence such as this instills.
