“The Amah Mutsun Tribal Band are the living descendents of Mutsun and Awaswas-speaking peoples who have continually occupied the greater Monterey Bay Region, thriving for thousands of years and countless generations prior to European contact.”
“Today the Amah Mutsun Tribe is an active community of nearly 600 members, each of whom can trace their individual descent directly to a Mission San Juan Bautista Indian and/or a Mission Santa Cruz Indian. Some within the Tribe can tie their descendency to other Missions as well. In addition to the annual gatherings discussed above, the Tribe also holds regular membership meetings of the Tribal Council. The Council is responsible for governing the day-to-day operations of the Tribe. The Tribal Council works closely with its elders, and within the traditional Tribal structure, to resolve member concerns and carry on the business of the Tribe.”
