Sept 24, 2010 California Indian Day

California Native American Day

California is one of the richest states in the nation because of the culture, heritage and history of its many tribes. From the Kumeyaay in San Diego to the Serrano in San Bernardino to the Yurok in the Klamath Basin, the indigenous people of California each have a diverse and peaceful existence that has lasted for many thousands of years. Today there are more than 100 recognized tribes in California; more than any other state in the nation.

An acknowledgment of the California Indians came in 1968 when Governor Ronald Reagan signed a resolution calling for the fourth Friday of each September to be American Indian Day. It was hoped that this acknowledgment would help to inform the general public about Indian heritage and the problems that are confronted by Indians in California.

It was in 1998 when the California Legislature passed Assembly Bill No. 1953 (Baca), establishing the day as an official day of education. Today, people of all ages celebrate California Native American Day by learning more about the culture, heritage and traditions of the California Indian.

The Kumeyaay Millennium

Sept 24, 2010 California Indian Day

( I respectfully submit this article written a few years ago by Anthony Pico, former Chairman of the Viejas Band of the Kumeyaay Nation.

Written from the indigenous view of history, readers must ponder the tenacity and endurance of the remnant population that survived centuries of horrific treatment by outsiders and their successive governments.)
