California Indian Day 2010

By Roy Cook

The acknowledgment of the heritage of Tribal California American Indians was recognized in 1968 when then Governor Ronald Reagan signed a resolution calling for the fourth Friday of each September to be American Indian Day in California. This acknowledgment has done much to inform the public about Indian heritage and the problems that are confronted by Indians in California. Today, the focus in Sacramento is on Tribal legal systems of enforcement and justice. September 24, 2010.




California Indian Day continues to be a tradition celebrated by many communities across the state. For some reason recently in San Diego County, we do not seem to organize public cultural activities promoting California Tribal heritage as there have been in the past.





Review these past events and historical information:

We must constantly respect our Tribal heritage and encourage the continuity of culture for the children and our own self-esteem. Thank you, Mehan.
