About the Tribe:
The Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians (“Tribe”) is a federally-recognized Indian Tribe located in Redwood Valley, Mendocino County, California. The Coyote Valley Reservation (“Reservation”) is 120 miles north of San Francisco and seven miles north of the town of Ukiah. The rural community of Redwood Valley is in the heart of California’s wine country, nestled among rolling hills of oak trees and vineyards. The beautiful Mendocino Coast is a fifty-mile drive west, and the famous “Avenue of the Giants” Redwood National Forest is a two-hour drive north on Highway 101. Lake Mendocino is a short five-mile drive south and Clear Lake is a twenty-five mile drive southeast.
The Tribe operates a number of governmental departments including a tribal police force, tribal education, health, housing, social services, recreation, and environmental protection departments, among others. In addition, the Tribal Government operates a Tribal administration complex providing administrative support, accounting and fiscal accountability, and human resource functions for the Tribe. The Tribe also maintains a learning center, swimming pool facility, gymnasium and park.
Ou...r tribal corporations own two gaming facilities, a convenience store and gas station and are in the process of building a new hotel and overhauling our infrastructure. The intent of the Tribe is to reach total economic self-sufficiency for the purpose of enhancing the quality of life of our Tribal members, while making positive contributions to the greater community.
