———————————————

Stockton, California, The California Valley Miwok Tribe once again is facing the

threat of eviction off its Tribal Property located at 10601 Escondido Pl., Stockton,

CA 95212.

Stockton is in the top 5 across the nation regarding homes being foreclosed upon.

Miwok territory covers 10 counties and our Tribe is fighting to retain its 1

1/2

acres

of land. It is our homeland, our history here in San Joaquin. We do not want to

lose our land. Our people are being threatened to be thrown out in the street (by

the San Joaquin Sheriff’s Dept.) on January 15, 2010.

We are asking for the community to join us. We are asking for One West Bank to

hold off on moving forward with the eviction. We have a lawsuit against the

California Gambling Control Commission that will be heard on February 9, 2010 in

which we anticipate our Revenue Sharing Trust Fund Money being released. That

means, the Tribe can pay to keep its property.

We are asking that One West Bank give us the extra time to have our day in court

and to have the chance to save our land. We (the “Tribe”) have had so much

taken from us in the past that it may only be 1 1/2 acres of land but it means

everything to us.

You may help by contacting Governor Schwarzenegger and tell him that the

California Valley Miwok Tribe (a federally recognized Miwok Tribe) is fighting off

being thrown out in the street due to foreclosure of their Tribal Property because

of the California Gambling Control Commission illegally withholding their Revenue

Sharing Trust Fund Money for the past 5 years. Tell the Governor that the Miwok

people are in a dire situation and that CGCC will not release our funding because

they say they are waiting for the local BIA to say who the Tribal leader is, but the

BIA says they have no jurisdiction or mandate to tell CGCC anything.

President Obama needs to intervene on our behalf and put a stop to the abuses

the local BIA has been inflicting upon our Tribe. RELEASE OUR FUNDS!!!
