Ione Band of Miwok Indians

Ione Band of Miwok Indians Information

The Ione Band of Miwok Indians is comprised of  Northern Sierra Miwok and Nisenan peoples.  For thousands of years, their people have lived on the lands that today make up Amador County and the surrounding area.  Following their restoration to federal recognition in 1994, the Tribe has worked tirelessly to acquire and restore to sovereign status the lands they once called their own.

In March 2020, the Tribe successfully restored their first trust lands in Northwestern Amador County.  Restoration of their homelands has ushered in a new era for the Ione Band, as they continue to flourish as a government and a people, and to build a community to support their generations to come. The Ione Band plans to build a hotel and conference center along with a casino.

Once the hotel is open, visitors can reach the Ione Band of Miwok Indians from the Sacramento International Airport (SMF), the nearest major airport. The region is accessible by car, providing a scenic drive through California's picturesque landscapes.
