About meThe Trinidad Rancheria Library was established by the Tribal Council in 1994 for the benefit of the Tribal Membership. The purpose of the Library is to promote the well being and preserve the history of the Trinidad Rancheria. It provides Tribal membership with literature collections that reflect the experience of the community and expose future generations to new ideas. It provides Tribal membership, employees and the surrounding community with access to culturally accurate and appropriate information regarding indigenous peoples and indigenous histories. It is a source of support for the education of our youth, a place for social gathering, and a center for lifelong learning.
About my libraryFor now our Library Thing Library will only include items and materials held in our Native Collection which houses books and media by and about Native peoples, and a few items of local interest. We try to focus our Native Collection on culturally accurate and appropriate materials, however, we don't believe in censorship. You may find that some of the books we have housed in the collection are culturally inappropriate and sometimes heavily biased toward the dominant culture worldview. We feel it is important to acknowledge the often distorted portrayals and sometimes outright lies being perpetrated about Native people. In this way we hope to inspire critical thought about the realities of Indigenous identity, and the importance of supporting a history of Native people as written by Native people.
