Member History

There are thirteen lineal descendants their names are as follows: Alec, Beecher, Bob, Cheepo, Joe, Lewis, Major, Marvin, McCabe, Moore, Riley, Sample.

Interesting fact: Wilbur Beecher is the last living lineal descendants. All the surrounding families gathered around and signed to join the tribe and make an official tribe in the 1958 prior to the BIA finalizing the tribe.


During this time and 1982 we consider this time as the Termination Era of the tribe.  Only in the March 28, 1983 is when the San Joaquin Band of Western Mono Indians or Big Sandy Rancheria V. James Watt is when the tribe sued the state of California and won!


Today we are totaling a total of 578 tribal members 370 older than 18 the rest are child base.
