REDDING, Calif. - Several individuals have been honored for their contributions to the Native American community at the annual Elders Dinner in Redding.

More than 100 people gathered at the Win-River Casino on Oct. 4 for the gathering. 

Redding Rancheria Chairman Jack Potter Jr. said that the event stems from a long tradition of honoring the wisdom and traditions that elders pass on to younger generations. 

"The people that we're honoring have changed laws for Indian country," Potter said. "They have advanced us, and so we like to acknowledge that and honor them because we are nothing without our elders. They have been through so many things that we have not, so as Indian country we always honor them and acknowledge them for their contributions." 

This year's honorees included Pat Begley, Michael Swan and Debbie Gard of the Wintu tribe and Barbara Lucero and Caleen Sisk of the Winnemem Wintu Tribe.
