About Pinoleville Pomo Nation

The Pinoleville Pomo Nation is a federally recognized tribe of Pomo people in Mendocino County, California. Leona Williams currently serves as Tribal Chairperson. The Pinoleville Pomo Nation's reservation is the Pinoleville Rancheria. The primary parcel of land occupies 99 acres in Mendocino County, and approximately 70 tribal members reside there. A second parcel, located in Lake County, is 6.7 acres large. The tribe is trying to place this second parcel into trust and develop it with housing. The Rancheria was terminated by the US Federal Government but it was restored in the 1980s. The Pomo who became the Pinoleville Band lived in northern Ukiah Valley, but their ancestral lands were overrun by non-native settlers in the mid-19th century.
