Picture - Traditional DesignOnce a year the American Indian Council of Mariposa County (AICMC) - aka the Southern Sierra Miwuk Nation - organizes a traditional Native American celebration.  To most people this celebration is known as a Pow Wow but, to us it is known as Chi-Tock-Non Kote-U-Pu - a drug-free, alcohol-free, smoke-free Spring Celebration. 

The next event, May 12 - 13, 2017, marks our 25th annual Pow Wow and is important not only as a celebration of our Native American culture, song and dance but, more importantly, helps to fund the Nellie Tucker Scholarship.  At present, the Southern Sierra Miwuk are not Federally recognized and, therefore, do not qualify for the larger Scholarships and Grants that are available to recognized tribes.  The Nellie Tucker scholarship, administered through the AICMC, provides funds for local Native students who are trying to further their education.
