About Us

The American Indian Council of Mariposa County is a non-profit agency which was initially incorporated by the state in 1972, and subsequently became a non-profit 501 C-3 entity in January 1993. The objectives and purpose of The American Indian Council is: (1) To maintain and provide education to its members and the public concerning the historical, social, and cultural traditions of the Indians of Mariposa County. (2) To take any action necessary for the protection and preservation of Indian cemeteries, burial and archeological sites, and artifacts. (3) To provide educational, social, housing and economic development, and health services for its members. (4) To encourage and promote by all practical means a proper system of education for members of all ages in such subjects as home economics, hygiene, child care and development, etc. cooperating with state and federal departments and agencies which seek to promote such work. (5) To administer scholarship programs if and when funding is available for such programs.

The Council currently operates out of the American Indian Council Office in Mariposa, California, which is next to our behavioral health and wellness center - the Miwumati Family Healing Center. AICMC operates a variety of Tribal community and public events throughout the year. In addition, the Council provides cultural monitor work and general consultation to the government and private parties.
