The Band

Quoting a Decision released by the US Department of the Interior, 31 August 2011, signed by the Assistant Secretary - Indian Affairs, Larry Echo Hawk:
(1) The California Valley Miwok Tribe (CVMT) is a federally recognized tribe, and has been continuously recognized by the United States since at least 1916;
(2) At the present date, the citizenship of the CVMT consists solely of Yakima Dixie, Silvia Burley, Rashel Reznor, Anjelica Paulk, and Tristian Wallace;

This decision is necessitated by a long and complex tribal leadership dispute that resulted in extensive administrative and judicial litigation [both Yakima Dixie and Silvia Burley claiming leadership over the tribe, Silvia Burley being eventually confirmed in her rights].

The Flag

The flag is quartered yellow-orange-brown-red with a black border, in the middle, the seal of the tribe. A copy of the flag is kept in the Museum of the American Indian. - Photo of the flag

Another copy of the flag, kept in the tribe's Council Hall, seems to confirm that the golden frame of the museum's flag is indeed a fringe, not part of the flag.
