The California Valley Miwok Tribe held the May USDA Food Drive on Tuesday the 19th, 2020. The USDA distributions resumed after only a one month hiatus due to the commitment of the Tule River Food Distribution Department and the Tule River tribal council to somehow still continue to meet the needs of dependent tribal communities, while still trying to adhere to safety standards for their personnel and staff.

Tribal citizens and participants alike were taken by surprise with the programs deliveries resuming so quickly, and were grateful for the assistance just as the economy looks to be starting up in phases.

The tribe itself in this month also has made headway in the defenses of its sovereignty, and so looks at this as another good sign.

Hopefully, soon the economy and unemployment issues will have more positive outlooks, and everyone will be able to resume some normalcy of the lives we all so recently lived.

The California Valley Miwok Tribe would like to thank the Tule River Tribe and its Food Distribution Department for quickly resuming this much valued service and a special thanks to specialist Mr. Ronald Buckman for the deliveries and his personal and continued dedication to this program.
