Announcement - your help needed! ... The Intertribal Council of Solano County is in need of storage space...

For many years, Alicia DeOcampo has graciously allowed us to keep our equipment, ie. tables, chairs, stage, PW signs, tents, books, office supplies, coolers, flag stands, filing cabinets, pots 'n' pan, etc. in her storage unit free of charge. But all good things must eventually come to an end. We are currently renting storage, but the cost is depleting our checking account rapidly. And since we haven't had a large fundraiser in a couple of years, there has been no grants, or funds coming in.

If anyone has storage space available for our use, please contact us. We have a tax exempt status, 501(c)(3) with the Federal and State governments, so anything that is offered is tax deductible. Thank you very much, your generosity will be greatly appreciated.

Intertribal Council of Solano County presents ...
Next summer, July 11-13, 2014
19th Anniversary Pow Wow


Announcing ...
Big news! We are changing our name!

Intertribal Council of Solano CountyWe are changing our name to "Intertribal Council of Solano County" beginning immediately. However, we still have to say "formerly known as: Vallejo Inter-Tribal Council" until the paperwork is complete.

We are changing the name to expand our territory to include other cities in Solano County as potential sponsors for the Pow Wow at Solano Community College, for support of our organization, and to broaden our membership. We will continue to participate in community events in Benicia, Fairfield, Vacaville, Suisun, and Vallejo, as well as other cities in the Bay Area.

We know this news may be surprising to our members and supporters, but there will be no dramatic changes to effect the work we do for the community.  We assure our followers we will still be active in the community, and visible for presentations, and continue to offer cultural activities.

We have graciously accepted the invitation to hold our annual Pow Wow at the Solano Community College on July 11-13, 2014, with the college co-hosting the event.  The college is a beautiful place to have the event, and we can guarantee you will enjoy the Pow Wow as much, or even better than in the past.  We urge everyone to mark their calendars so they won't miss this much anticipated celebration!! (We will distribute a Pow Wow flyer asap.

At City Park in Vallejo ...
Great time at the Vallejo Unity Day!

Vallejo Unity Day 2013Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013, the Intertribal Council staffed an Indian Taco Booth at the Unity Day Celebration at City Park in Vallejo. We want to thank Vallejo Together's Maria Guevara and all the staff and volunteers for welcoming us so warmly to their event.

We opened with Eric StrongBear Fisher, Chair, saying a prayer, and members of Sweet Medicine, Midge Wagner, Janet Kendall, and Sierra R. Reid singing with Eric, an Honor Song to bless and welcome everyone who attended.

We want to thank Intertribal members: Eric StrongBear Fisher, Janet and Brian Kendall, Katrina Wauer, Sierra R. Reid, EJ Fisher, Sarahid Rivera, Gary ShortBull Estes, Jim Goss, and Midge Wagner for volunteering their precious time to make this event a success for our organization, and a glorious time for all of us, as well. A mention and shout-out to Benjamin and Mary Ann Buggs, Intertribal members, as well, for juggling their time between their booth, Faith Food Fridays, and ours.
