‎"The Miwuk’s 1982 petition

‎"The Miwuk’s 1982 petition is full of genealogical and tribal historical errors because the indigenous Yosemite Natives were Yosemite–Mono Lake Paiutes, not Miwuks. The Southern Sierra Miwuk are using the history of our Paiute people to seek federal recognition" Dave Andrews has made good strong valid points regarding the American Indian History Of Yosemite Valley; backing it up with documentation and real facts. It is unfortunate that the National Park Service of Yosemite Valley, will not listen or read through this documentation that they have been presented with over the last several years, that outlines and contradicts much of the information that the Southern Sierra Miwoks have submitted in their bid for Federal Recognition. This is but another tragic case where the real facts of American Indian culture and history will be masked behind a facade of "half truths" and "what if's. While their are many that disagree with information that has been presented, there are many who believe the truth is still out there and will eventually come to light.·
