A recipient receiving their distribution from the Tule River staff during the Jan 11th distribution.

The California Valley Miwok Tribe held its first food distribution of the new year at its tribal offices, located at 10601 Escondido Place, Stockton, CA 95212. These are indeed troubled times for all Americans and especially American Indians. The California Valley Miwok Tribe understands this and is currently trying to acquire alternate programs to replace conventional ones that at this time are unavailable to the Tribe to help not only the Tri-Miwok Consortium members but the local Native American community.

This first installment of the new year’s food distribution has made the Tribe aware of the many other deficiencies that need to be addressed. So in this coming year, the Tribe shall continue to network to bring to the Native peoples affected, additional services as the Tribe is able to acquire them. At this time, the California Valley Miwok Tribe would like to thank the entire food distribution staff of Tule River Tribe for working so closely with our tribal government in continuing to make this vital service available.
