sacred site protection
Why the different spelling?
We are the aboriginal, historic 1851 Treaty and 1934 IRA Shingle Springs Mewuk Tribe of El Dorado County, traceable to the "Digger Indian" history, artifacts and sacred sites in
El Dorado County. We are a California Non-gaming Tribe and are here to educate and serve the community.

The Wopumnes are the real historic Shingle Springs Indians and are not affiliated with the "RedHawk Casino" owned by the non-indigenous group from Sutter County the "Verona-Sacramento River Band" who in 1979 moved onto our ancestral lands of the Shingle Springs Rancheria. In 1980 the Verona Band then usurped our history, "Trademark" and IRA name to operate the Redhawk Casino as the "Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians, Shingle Springs Rancheria" This group has no history prior to 1979 in El Dorado County and do NOT legally own the trademark. The case is being litigated in Federal Court.
