This fundraiser features renowned musical artist MaMuse! We’re so happy to have them with us again!!


California Heritage: Indigenous Research Project is a 501c3 non-profit organization and funds raised by this event support Federal Recognition and Cultural Revitalization efforts. The Nisenan Tribal members of the Nevada City Rancheria are original, lineal descendants of the Nisenan, who were here before the gold rush and remain here in their Ancestral Homelands today.
