Elders; those who have earned the respect of their own community and who are looked upon as Elders in their own society. Elders are the repositories of cultural and philosophical knowledge and are the transmitters of such information.
Important Elder information can be found at the National Indian Council on Aging, Inc. website, found on our Outside Agencies list.
The Tribal Eatery is open and is serving lunch for the Elders on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:000 pm to 1:00 pm. Shelf meals are provided for Tuesdays and Thursdays. If the elder eats at the Eatery on Monday and Wednesday, they will receive a coupon worth $10 towards a meal at Diamond Mountain Casino for Friday of the same week. CIMC is funding the Eatery for all tribal members that are living in Lassen County and 60 years of age and older. The SIR TBC is supplementing the program to include all Native Americans living in Lassen County between the ages of 55 and 59 and the non native spouses of those eating at the Eatery. Tribal member Anne Hart is the cook and she is serving tasty and healthy hot meals.
