About Wilton Rancheria

Wilton Rancheria Indian Tribe is a federally recognized Native American Miwok tribe. They were formed from Wilton Rancheria Miwok and the Me-Wuk Indian Community of the Wilton Rancheria. Today, there are approximately 600 people that belong to the tribe. The rancheria (or reservation) consists of 38.5 acres (156,000 m) of land located in the Sacramento Valley, near the city of Elk Grove, CA in the census-designated place of Wilton, CA. The ancestors of the Wilton Rancheria Miwok lived for many years on land bordering the Cosumnes River until 1958. The tribal members are descendants of the Plains and Sierra Miwok who lived and prospered in the Sacramento Valley.
