Yosemite Miwok - California

The Miwok people are residents of three small rancherias near Yosemite National Park in central California. The three rancherias are the Jackson (pop. 21), Shingle Springs (pop. 18), and Tuolumne (pop. 135) (AID, 39-41). Yosemite Miwok also live beyond the three rancherias.

The Flag

No official flag is known for the most inland bands of the Miwok people. A member of their Tribe, Frank Jordan, an itinerant repairman of antique bathtubs, has designed and proposed a flag.

That flag is red and bears a bust of a Miwok warrior in profile facing left. The warrior appears in shades of brown, white, and black and wears white-and-black feathers. Above the warrior's head is YOSEMITE, below is MIWOK, both in white edged in black [see Olemitcha Miwok].

[Thanks to NAVA member Jim Ferrigan for a sample Yosemite Miwok flag.]
