JACKSON, CA – The Jackson Rancheria Band of Miwuk Indians has announced the cancellation of the 7th annual Chaw’se Day Celebration. The decision was made after careful consideration amid ongoing concerns of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and the recent temporary closure announcement of Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort.
All casino, hotel and RV park operations will temporarily closed, beginning Wednesday, March 18 at 8 a.m. Jackson Rancheria’s 24-hour General Store & Gas Station will remain open. To date, the Jackson Rancheria Band of Miwuk Indians and Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort have no reported cases of COVID-19.
Initially scheduled for May 23 and 24 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the weekend long Chaw’se Day celebration welcomes Spring with Native American games, cuisine, dancing, crafts and more.
“In the primary interest of protecting the safety of all and in an effort to play our part in slowing the progression of this virus, we feel that the cancellation of the event is the most responsible decision at this time,” said Adam Dalton, Tribal Chairman of the Jackson Rancheria Band of Miwuk Indians. “Chaw’se Day is a great opportunity for Californians near and far to learn about Native American history and simultaneously enjoy a variety of unique food, music, and activities, and we look forward to sharing this experience in the future.”
