Last month through the Indian grape vine it was said that the chairman of the Southern Sierra Miwuk, also known as the American Indian Council of Mariposa, had to resign his post as chairman. The chairman reportedly had to resign because there was a conflict of interest based on the ethics clause of the Department of the Interior. It appears you cannot work for the National Park Service and have your non-profit attain grants, set a side awards, and task service agreements from the same agency you work for. The chairman's non-profit, who is an employee of Yosemite National Park Service, had made agreements between Yosemite NPS and the Southern Sierra Miwuk. The non-profit Southern Sierra Miwuk is in the process of opening up a new Indian Center inside Yosemite National Park that they will run exclusively.

Several years ago Paiutes objected to Yosemite National Park assisting the non-profit Southern Sierra Miwuk over federally recognized tribes in the area. If the above rumor is true then finally Yosemite National Park Service is now following the ethics clause regarding this non-profit. Sadly Yosemite National Park has almost completed the Southern Sierra Miwuks new Indian Center in the Park.

An new Indian Center created in the name of the Miwoks which history has documented were the scouts for the Mariposa Battalion.
