Organization: Mountain Maidu Historical Preservation Association

First year with MSC: 2011

Tribe: Yamani Maidu

I was born in Quincy, Ca. Graduated from Westwood High School. Has been involved with the Maidu Summit Consortium since 2011 and has had the pleasure of watching it grow into what is today.

I am working towards increasing the Maidu presence throughout the state of California, and seeking to bring cultural relevancy to land management in Maidu country.

Gaining back ancestral lands, like Tásmam Kojóm, is an important success for all Maidu.

My hope is that Tásmam  Kojóm will help to bring back traditions and allow for the Maidu youth to gain back cultural knowledges.
