Nisenan Heritage Day a success

Our community once again showed their support and interest for our Nevada County Native American Tribe the Nisenan.

Saturday, Sept. 6, was the Fifth Annual Nisenan Heritage Day. We would like to thank Sierra College for once again co-sponsoring this wonderful cultural event, The Union for being receptive to our message of historical relevance and CHIRP for continuing to support the important work of the Nevada City Rancheria.
