The Ione Band of Miwok Indians is comprised of Northern Sierra Miwok and Nisenan peoples. For thousands of years, our people have lived on the lands that today make up Amador County and the surrounding area. Following our restoration to federal recognition in 1994, the Tribe has worked tirelessly to acquire, and restore to sovereign status, lands we once called our own. In March 2020 we successfully restored our first trust lands in Northwestern Amador County. Restoration of our homelands has ushered in a new era for the Ione Band, as we continue to flourish as a government and a people, and to build a community to support our many generations to come.
