Miwok Tribal Chairman Nick Fonseca didn't even KNOW HE WAS Indian until he was 13. And now, he's the leader of his tribelet.
Cesar Caballero says:
The 39-year-old graphic artist says that 300 descendents of El Dorado County Miwok Indians are being denied their tribal rights, including land on the Shingle Springs Rancheria and proceeds from the new Red Hawk Casino.
The Sacramento Verona Band of Homeless Indians has stolen the identity of the Shingle Springs tribe in order to build the casino and reap the rewards, Caballero claims.
