The California Valley Miwok Tribe hosted a meet and greet meeting with Mayor Anthony Silva, City of Stockton. Although there are many American Indians living in Stockton and the surrounding communities, the California Valley Miwok Tribe is the only federally recognized Tribe residing in San Joaquin County.

It is said that, “when Mayor Anthony Silva decided to run for office it was to make a difference.” It is an honor for the California Valley Miwok Tribe to meet Mayor Silva. He expressed his priorities and focus as having a safer city (by hiring more police), and to bring new business to Stockton that will create job opportunities. Helping the homeless, the youth, the veterans, and repairing city roads were also brought into the conversations.

The California Valley Miwok Tribe warmly welcomed the Mayor to the Tribal Office/Tribal property, gave him a tour of the “Wall of Achievement”, familiarized him to the Miwok history & Miwok Culture, and talked of issues and concerns that are affecting our Tribe.

Mayor Anthony Silva was elected in November 2012. He was born and raised in Stockton, graduated from Lincoln High School and Humphrey’s College. He has served as the President and Chief Executive Officer for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Stockton, and from 2004 to 2008, Mayor Silva served as a member of the Stockton Unified District Board of Education and was appointed Board President in 2006 and 2007. He has also served as a City of Stockton Parks & Recreation Commissioner.

The California Valley Miwok Tribe sincerely thanks Mayor Anthony Silva (City of Stockton) for making the effort to listen and understand our Tribal issues and concerns. Mayor Silva truly is making a difference. That simple act of kindness and respect shown by Mayor Silva demonstrates how compassionate and serious he is in hearing from all his constituents.

On Friday, March 14, 2014, the California Valley Miwok Tribe (CVMT) held its monthly USDA Food Distribution. The Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) program is administered at the Federal level by the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, FDPIR is administered locally by either Indian Tribal Organizations (ITOs) or an agency of a State government. Currently, there are approximately 276 tribes receiving benefits under the FDPIR through 100 ITOs and 5 State agencies.

USDA purchases and ships FDPIR foods to the ITOs and State agencies based on their orders from a list of available foods. These administering agencies store and distribute the food, determine applicant eligibility, and provide nutrition education to recipients. USDA provides the administering agencies with funds for program administrative costs.

Low-Income American Indian and non-Indian households that reside on reservation, and households living in approved areas near a reservation or in Oklahoma that contain at least one person who is a member of a Federally-recognized tribe, are eligible to participate in FDPIR. Households are certified based on financial (e.g., income) and non-financial standards set by the Federal government, and must be recertified at least every 12 months.

The CVMT Tribal Council sincerely thanks the Tule River Reservation (USDA Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations), Mr. Richard McDarment, USDA FDIR Director, Mrs. Patricia Salas, USDA FDIR Intake Manager, Mr. Jesus Salas, USDA FDIR Staff, and Mr. Ronald Buckman, USDA FDIR Staff & driver.

Rosette LLP Memorandum

02/25/2014 – CVMT TRIBAL OFFICES, TRIBAL LAND, STOCKTON, CA
Recently, a legal memorandum that pertains to issues very current in ‘Indian country’ was initiated by the Indian law firm of Rosette LLP.

The Tribe is posting this memorandum because it is also supported by authentic documents (legally obtained), that fully support the foundation of the legal arguments represented in the memorandum.

The Tribe continues to receive correspondence in various communications too numerous to adequately respond to, so in an attempt to satisfy requests, the Tribe is making this document and corresponding evidence available to give more transparency and understanding on these very issues that affect all within Indian country.

The Tribe offers this information without political comment.

Thank you.

FDPIR provides USDA Foods to low-income households living on Indian reservations, and to American Indian households residing in approved areas near reservations or in Oklahoma.

Household are certified on income and resource standards set by the Federal government, and must be re-certified at least every 12 months. Elderly and disabled households may be certified for up to 24 months."

What foods are available through FDPIR? Each month, participating households receive a food package to help them maintain a nutritionally balanced diet. Participants may select from over 70 products including: frozen ground beef, beef roast, chicken, canned meats, poultry and fish – canned fruits, vegetables, beans, soups, and spaghetti sauce – pastas, cereals, rice, and other grains – cheese, egg mix, lowfat ultra high temperature milk, nonfat dry milk, and evaporated milk – flour, cornmeal, bakery mix, and crackers – dried beans and dehydrated potatoes – juices and dried fruit – peanuts and peanut butter.

How to Apply. You may contact the California Valley Miwok Tribe at 209.931.4567 for a USDA FDPIR application, or contact your SDA/Indian Tribal Organization (ITO), or the Food and Nutrition Service Regional Office in your area for further assistance.

The CVMT Tribal Council sincerely thanks the Tule River Reservation (USDA Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations), Mr. Richard McDarment, USDA FDIR Director, Mrs. Patricia Salas, USDA FDIR Intake Manager, Mr. Jesus Salas, USDA FDIR Staff, and Mr. Ronald Buckman, USDA FDIR Staff & driver.

Governor Brown Declares A Statewide Drought Emergency - Help Save Our Water

02/19/2014 – CVMT TRIBAL OFFICES, TRIBAL LAND, STOCKTON, CA
The California Valley Miwok Tribe, in partnership with the “Save Our Water” public education program, has acquired the following water conserving information to share with our readers.

HELP SAVE CALIFORNIA’S WATER

Our state is facing severe water challenges, and many communities and ecosystems are suffering as a result. Environmental problems, the pressures of a growing population and the effects of climate change are making it extremely difficult to keep water flowing reliably to our economy, our environment, our farms and our communities. State and local water managers are working on long-term solutions, including investments in our water infrastructure. But in the meantime, California needs every drop of water it can get, which is why we all need to do more to conserve water. Doing everything we can to save water today will go a long way toward helping our water supply situation while we move ahead with the necessary long-term fixes.

The good news is that it’s not difficult to save water in our daily lives. Just as Californians have embraced compact-fluorescent light bulbs and recycling, we can adopt habits to reduce our water use inside and outside our homes on a daily basis. As we have seen with energy conservation, small changes in our daily habits can make a big difference for California. In 2009, the California Department of Water Resources joined with the Association of California Water Agencies—450 public water agencies throughout the state—to form a statewide conservation and education program called “Save Our Water”. This effort is aimed at helping Californians learn about our water challenges and ways to save water inside and outside our homes.

For example, did you know that the typical Californian uses much more water outdoors than indoors? Watering the lawn, washing cars and cleaning off the driveway and patio use much more water than you might think. Simple changes to our behavior, such as watering only when your landscape needs it or using a broom instead of the hose on the driveway, can add up to big water savings for the state.

For more information about how to conserve water or about the “Save Our Water” public education program, please visit www.saveourH2O.org.

Chairperson Burley Advocates For California’s 12 Federally Recognized ‘Landless’ Tribes

02/13/2014 – CVMT TRIBAL OFFICES, TRIBAL LAND, STOCKTON, CA
California Valley Miwok Tribe’s Chairperson Silvia Burley received a personal letter from the Department of the Interior, Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs, Kevin Washburn in response to Chairperson Burley advocating for California’s federally recognized ‘landless’ Tribes during the 2013 White House Tribal Nations Conference, held at the Department of the Interior – Indian Affairs Sidney Yates Auditorium, in November 2013.

On November 13, 2013, while representing the California Valley Miwok Tribe at the 5th White House Tribal Nations Conference (WHTNC) in Washington DC, Chairperson Silvia Burley participated in the “Strengthening Tribal Economies (Breakout Session) in which she spoke in front of a delegation of White House and Interior officials to bring to their attention the need for the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and the officials and Departments of the White House , to work together with federally recognized tribes that are “landless”, to build a stronger relationship between their agencies and departments in regards to the issues facing federally recognized “Landless” tribes.

Chairperson Burley went into detail outlining the hardships that federally recognized “landless” tribes deal with on a daily basis. She made it a point that she will continue to advocate, and be a voice for the landless tribes. She said there needs to be initiative taken at the Bureau of Indian Affairs and by White House officials to collaborate with all federally recognized “landless” tribes with efforts focused on action to bring economic opportunities to the ‘landless’ Native sovereign nations whom are in desperate need of creating jobs and skilled labor for positive growth and forward progress of these tribes.

Chairperson Burley asked that her voice be heard and that the voice of all other federally recognized “landless” tribes be heard too! She reiterated that the trust responsibility that the United States has with sovereign Tribal Nations must be met and that relationship should be continually strengthened.

While attending the WHTNC, Chairperson Burley learned that California is home to twelve federally recognized tribes that are ‘landless’. In late December 2013, Chairperson Burley received a personally written letter from the United States Department of the Interior Assistant Secretary, Indian Affairs, Kevin Washburn. The letter states, “ Dear Chairperson Burley, Thank you for your participation in the White House Tribal Nations Conference. I heard you loud and clear about the needs of landless tribes. The solutions are not simple, but the Administration is committed to insuring that Tribes have homelands and I encourage you to continue advocating for your Tribe. Warm Regards, Kevin Washburn."

The California Valley Miwok Tribe would like to thank President Barack Obama, the Obama Administration, Bureau of Indian Affairs officials, Dept. of the Interior officials, Dept. of Justice participants, speakers, coordinators, other government departmental officials, Tribal Chairperson/Chiefs and Tribal Representatives who attended the 5th White House Tribal Nations Conference. and a special thank you to the many individuals and groups who spoke to Chairperson Burley regarding the ‘landless’ tribes’ issue. In closing, the California Valley Miwok Tribe warmly thanks Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs Mr. Kevin Washburn for his letter informing Chairperson Burley that her voice and message was heard loud and clear
