REDDING, Calif. - The Redding Rancheria is donating a total of $20,000 to tribes that have been impacted by the Bear Fire, also known as the North Complex West Zone.
They will be donating $10,000 to the Mooretown Rancheria of Maidu Indians and $10,000 to the Berry Creek Rancheria of Tyme Maidu Indians.
The Bear Fire wreaked havoc on the aboriginal Maidu Land. Many tribal members lost their homes and other property.
The Redding Rancheria said the date chosen to present the donation was also to create awareness about the California Native American Day celebrated the fourth Friday of every September. This holiday is celebrated across the United States in lieu of Columbus Day. It is a day in honor of Native Americans.
