The California Truth & Healing Council, created by Governor Newsom via Executive Order N-15-19, bears witness to, records, examines existing documentation of, and receives California Native American narratives regarding the historical relationship between the State of California and California Native Americans in order to clarify the historical record of such relationship in the spirit of truth and healing. The Council is led and convened by the Governor’s Tribal Advisor and governed by a Governing Council of California Native American leaders, and may include additional non-voting representatives from California Native American tribes, relevant state and local agencies, and other relevant non-governmental stakeholders.
The Council works with California Native American tribes to shape the overarching focus and develop the work of the Council and will endeavor to accurately represent the diversity of experience of all California Native Americans within the State of California through ongoing communication and consultation.
The Council is currently seeking to conduct interviews for Native oral histories, particularly from elders, and can provide you with assistance in providing submissions. Please contact us expressing your interested in submitting an oral history.
The Council will submit a final written report of findings to the Governor’s Office by 2025.
- The final report should reflect a holistic understanding of the historical relationship between California Native Americans and the State.
- The final report may also make recommendations aimed at reparation and restoration and consider how to prevent similar depredations and/or policies in the future.
