About the Santa Rosa Rancheria Tachi Yokut Tribe:
The Tachi Yokut Tribe has inhabited the San Joaquin Valley for thousands of years, maintaining a strong connection to the land, their history, and their traditions. After losing much of their aboriginal territory with the arrival of the Spanish, Mexican, and American settlers, many of the Yokut were displaced from their indigenous homelands. After the Americans chose not to ratify the eighteen treaties signed in California, many were driven from their lands on to failing reservations. In 1853, forty acres of desolate farmland was set aside for the few Tachi that remained in this area with the help of a Tulare County lawyer named Mr. Atwell. After being one of the largest Tribes in California, the Tachi were reduced to four families residing on what would later be named, Santa Rosa Rancheria. Despite the devastation brought through disease and invasion, solace was found in the fact that the Tachi were one of the few Tribes that could remain within their aboriginal homeland, at the village of Wiu. Though times were hard for the families that remained, as they lived far below poverty, the Rancheria could grow; by 1980, the Rancheria grew to be 170 acres with 200 members.
In 1983, the Tachi Yokut opened the Southgate Bingo Palace, which created enough jobs and revenue to provide an economic boost to the Rancheria. In 1994, The Palace Indian Gaming Center was created and grew from eighty-six to over 1,100 employees by 2016. The Palace, and its gaming revenues, has allowed the Tachi Tribe to overcome many economic challenges, to return to self-sufficiency, to rebuild the Rancheria, to continue their cultural traditions and practices, and to grow their landholdings and population. Coyote Entertainment Center is the next venture by The Tachi Yokut Tribe in their long journey.
