(Tule River Tribe, Porterville, CA 93257) –

The Tule River Tribe will be presenting zoom presentations from 6 pm to 8 pm open to the public every Tuesday in November to celebrate the 3rd Annual Native American Heritage Month.  The zoom presentations will include Tribal History, Eagle Mountain Casino, Gathering, Windy Fire, Decolonizing Thanksgiving, and more.  “This year specifically, we teach and learn the tribal yowlumne language, cultural and spiritual customs, the tribe’s successes, such as the casino and also the tribe’s cultural devastations of the wildland fires”, said Carly Gomez, Team Member Relations Specialist at Eagle Mountain Casino who is also the coordinator of the zoom events. All participants that log on are entered into a random raffle to win prizes.  “The goal of the weekly zoom is to provide an opportunity to learn who we are & where we come from, so we can continue cultural traditions that may be scarce or not be available for those interested in learning, while bringing the tribal language into the homes of tribal members for the entire family to experience!” said Gomez. For more information, contact Carly Gomez at 559-361-2878. To participate in the zoom, log in every Tuesday in November from 6 pm-8 pm by following the link and information below: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/81657333292?pwd=RWZHQkt1TXkzeUhzbEtHZ2QyZEkydz09 Meeting ID: 816 5733 3292 Passcode: 222196  The Tule River reservation was established in 1873 in Porterville, Ca.
