Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians

Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians Information

The Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians are descendants of the Miwok and Southern Maidu "Nisenan" Indians. They flourished for thousands of years in what is now California's central valley, strategically living on the Sacramento River at the confluences of the Feather and American rivers. The river was their home. In the early 1900s, the Tribe was relocated by the government to what is now known as the Shingle Springs Rancheria. Despite many hardships, the Tribe has persevered and thrived. Originally 160 acres, the Rancheria now encompasses almost 1,000 acres.

In the past several years, through arduous processes, the Tribe has been fortunate to reclaim some of its Indigenous territory. These lands have enormous historical and cultural significance and can help preserve heritage, language and way of life, fostering a sense of continuity for future generations.

In addition to managing its sovereign tribal government, the Tribe owns many thriving businesses, including Red Hawk Resort + Casino and Shingle Springs Health & Wellness Center, which is open to both native and non-Native patients. The Tribe is the sole shareholder of Acorn Enterprises, which owns and operates Express Fuel.

The Tribe's vision was that Red Hawk Resort + Casino be created to honor the past and celebrate the future. The hotel and casino's architecture is in harmony with tradition, nature and our stunning surroundings.
