The Redding Rancheria holds in highest regard its Tribal Elders, especially the seventeen Tribal Elders we call our Original Distributees. A congressional act terminated the Redding Rancheria as a reservation in 1959 and ordered the distribution of it assets. Some of these assets included the reservation land; this land was divided between the reservation’s seventeen adult Native Americans living on the reservation at the time. These seventeen individuals are now referred to as the Original Distributees of the Redding Rancheria. In 2018 the last of our Original Distributees- Barbara Murphy- passed on, but we still honor and recognize each and every one of them. 2

The Redding Rancheria logo was created to represent the Pit River, Yana and Wintu Tribes which are aboriginal to Shasta County, California. The center of the logo represents the center of each Tribe’s country with their traditional food sources of salmon and acorns, their water source and Mount Shasta, which is sacred to all three tribes. Each of the feathers represents an original distributee that was still living at the time the logo was designed. These elders were: Carole Timmons, Art Hayward, Mildred Rhoades, Betty Benner, Dorothy Dominguez, Amy Burns and Barbara Murphy. Logo was designed by Tribal Member Jack Potter, Jr., in 1997. 33

Vision Statement Redding Rancheria is a sovereign nation where pride in tribal culture, history and identity is evident internally and in the larger community. We are a leader in the development of our people within our traditional homelands. The strength of our Tribe lies in honoring our elders, building healthy families and promoting self-reliance in our members. We invest in our youth and adults, knowing that they will create the future with the strength of our ancestors. We empower them with knowledge and skills for a changing world. We lead by example in community development and stewardship of the land. Economic development and diversity provide a secure future for the Tribe and contribute to a vibrant economy. We preserve and celebrate our culture and live the traditions of our ancestors while building a brighter world for generations to come. 4

Tribal History In 1922 the Bureau of Indian Affairs purchased the land that is now considered the Redding Rancheria. The purchase was made to provide a place for homeless Indians to camp and live and that is what this land became for many Indians in Shasta and Trinity Counties. Our Rancheria was unique as it included Indians not just from one Tribe, but Indians of Pit River, Wintu and Yana descent. Prior to the government purchasing the land for Indian homes, many Indians The late Tribal Elder, Art Hayward, gathered in the area to fish for salmon in Clear Creek. Life on the reservation looks on as his house is demolished for the future site of the Casino was communal. People looked after one another’s children, planted gardens and carried buckets of water from nearby Clear Creek’s natural springs. Indians on the Rancheria lived a selfsufficient lifestyle. The history of the treatment of Indians in California is tragic. As recently as 1958, the California Rancheria Act expressed Congress’ intent to eradicate the cultural identity of Indians. In the era of termination, Congress unilaterally extinguished the special status and rights of tribes. The Redding Rancheria was terminated by an act of Congress on July 6, 1959. This act set forth the distribution of assets of the Rancheria. The Rancheria was no longer recognized by the government and the people residing on the Rancheria were no longer considered Indians. As the years progressed, the Rancheria was parceled off and sold to Indians and non-Indians alike. In spite of this, those living on the Rancheria continued their communal traditions and operated a traditional Tribal Council. As part of the California Rancheria Act, the Bureau of Indian Affairs was obligated to establish and maintain a domestic water system and provide a road along with housing. However, it built only a handful of substandard houses and failed to fulfill its other obligations. During the late 1970s, the Inter-Tribal Council of California was active in forming task forces challenging the termination of a number of Tribes. In 1983, a California District Court ruled that the failure of the BIA to comply with its obligations under the California Rancheria Act invalidated the Act. As a result, the Redding Rancheria and 17 other tribes were restored as federally-recognized Indian tribes. In 1987, the restored Redding Rancheria Tribe formally adopted its Constitution.

Message from the Chairperson Hestum, My name is Jack Eldon Potter, Jr. I am a Winnemen Wintu and I am honored to represent my Tribe in many ways – from serving on various committees to being elected Vice President of the National Congress of American Indians for the Pacific region. I have served as an official for our Tribal government for the past 19 years and was recently re-elected as Tribal Chairperson. As I look back over the years, I am amazed at how much Indian Country has changed. As a Tribal Member, I am truly grateful for Redding Rancheria’s success. With our focus on community involvement and building partnerships, we are moving forward as one of Northern California’s leading tribes. We are now in the fourth year of both our Visions of the Future 10-year plan and our RREDCO Strategic Plan. I am proud to say we are right on target to achieve those goals set forth four years ago. Together we will reach our goals, and throughout this next decade we will already be thinking of the next decade to come. Redding Rancheria has always been and will continue to be a supporter of charitable events within our traditional homelands. We will continue to provide services to our non-recognized Indian community such as the Wintu tribe of Northern California, the Nor-El-Muk Wintu Nation and Winnemem Wintu tribe. We have always supported them with funding assistance for ceremonies, burials, food and clothing. As sister tribes of Wintu people, we all come from the same history of genocide. Collectively we are the once great Wintu Nation, working together as natives should, respecting one another based on the history we share in common as the Indigenous people of Shasta County, the Wintu, Pit River, Yana, Hat Creek and Okwanachu peoples. We will continue to be involved tribally, locally and nationally with our neighboring tribes and local community. I believe Redding Rancheria and the rest of Indian Country will continue to be an integral and vibrant part of Shasta County. With that said, I am honored as Tribal Chairperson to present this 2017-2018 State of the Tribe report. Chairman, Jack Potter, Jr. Sukma, Jack E. Potter, Jr. Tribal Chairperson

Political Participation While Redding Rancheria is its own sovereign government, it is also continually working to form mutually beneficial relationships with the federal, state and local governments with which we work.

In 2015 the Redding Rancheria recognized a real need to increase access to healthcare for the Medi-Cal population within Shasta County. On November 5, 2015, Churn Creek Healthcare opened to all residents of Shasta County who have Medi-Cal or Partnership Health Plan coverage. Today Churn Creek Healthcare has almost 5,000 patients assigned to us for their primary care. In 2016 Churn Creek Healthcare expanded services to offer a walk-in urgent care that is open 7 days a week to all Medi-Cal, Partnership Health Plan and tribal patients. We also recognized a need for access to physical therapy, cardiology and mental health/behavioral health for the growing Medi-Cal population in Shasta County. Because of this growing need, all of these services were started at Churn Creek Healthcare in 2016. In 2017 we opened the Redding Rancheria Recovery Center. This service provides access to Suboxone Therapy to help residents of Shasta County with opioid and heroin addiction, and also offers support for alcohol use disorder.

Land Acquisition As descendants of the original residents of the North State, Redding Rancheria has long made expansion of its Tribal land base a high priority. Acquiring additional land certainly serves an economic development purpose for the Tribe, but it also is important for historical and spiritual reasons. Native American heritage values connection with the land and the creatures on that land. Currently, Redding Rancheria’s total land holdings in Shasta County and Trinity County, total around 535 acres. Most recently, the Tribe transferred 89.94 Lowery Property along highway 273 acres of fee land, known as the Lowry Property, into federal trust status. The Lowry Property is contiguous to the current Rancheria and sits to the north of Clear Greek and to the west of highway 273.

Enrollment Redding Rancheria Tribal Members are all lineal descendants of the 17 Original Distributees who lived on the Tribal reservation in 1959. Tribes are inherently responsible for determining their own membership. Redding Rancheria’s Enrollment Department is responsible to ensure that eligible people are enrolled. During 2017-18 there were 31 children enrolled. 25

Tribal Member Services Elder Services Honoring Tribal elders is an important aspect of Redding Rancheria’s culture as it is in the Native American community as a whole. The Tribe shows respect to its elders ages 50 and older, by providing monthly financial assistance, monthly elder appreciation dinners, and twice-yearly energy assistance payments. During the past two years an average of 38 Tribal elders have received these benefits.

Health & Wellness Redding Rancheria believes that the health and well-being of its Tribal Members is of utmost importance. All Members are provided a comprehensive health benefits package that exceeds those provided employees of most large companies. These benefits include medical, dental, vision and life insurance. Additionally, a custom supplemental health program helps pay for many health-related expenses not covered by traditional insurance.

I-5 Property

The Tribe currently owns the “Strawberry Fields” site consisting of 232 acres. The Tribe filed an application in 2010 seeking to have the federal government acquire the 232-acre site in trust for the Tribe. The purpose of the proposed action is to facilitate tribal selfsufficiency, self-determination, and economic development. The Redding Rancheria’s proposed Fee-to-Trust application and proposed Casino Project is located just outside the southern boundary of the City of Redding within unincorporated Shasta County, California. The transfer of the 232 acres, if accepted, will subsequently allow development for gaming purposes with a variety of uses including an approximately 69,541 square foot casino, 250-room hotel, conference and event centers, restaurants, retail facilities, parking, and other supporting facilities. The proposed project will replace the Redding Rancheria’s existing Win-River Resort and Casino, and the existing facility will be renovated, most likely, into tribal services and housing uses. The proposed project secures a strong future for the next seven generations of Tribal Members while contributing to economic opportunities throughout the greater community. The project is anticipated to create 2,120 construction jobs resulting is $99.1 million in construction-related wages, an additional 550 career-related job opportunities resulting in $12.2 million in new wages, substantial economic output for local business and millions of dollars in tax revenue for state, county and local governments.

Win-River Resort & Casino The Organizational Development Team is the core group of Executive Directors for Win-River Resort & Casino responsible for guiding the organization towards future expansion and success. The success of Win-River Resort & Casino lies in the dedication of our Team Members, superior Guest Services, and leaderships’ ability to “embrace change”. Our organization’s culture is built upon several key components: our shared vision, mission, values, principles, and a promise to our guests, Team Members, and Tribal Members. All of these components fuel our passion to provide premier gaming, entertainment, and hospitality experiences. We are proud of the efforts put forth to deliver these unparalleled experiences and humbled by the achievements made to support our Tribe and community. As we look to the future development on I-5, Win-River Resort & Casino Organizational Development Team is dedicated to the growth and expansion of our premier gaming and entertainment resort destination.


Win-River Resort & Casino The Future of Win-River Resort & Casino A future expansion to I-5 also requires continued focus on maintaining growth in our current operation. The uncertainty of 2019 remains a challenge as we navigate through the aftermath of the CARR Fire, an election year, continued negotiation for a new Compact with the State of California, and restoring our native lands into trust. We are gaining traction in establishing our restored lands into trust for our I-5 expansion and development. We have completed the required environmental report and traffic study, high-level architectural design and development work, and a business plan and feasibility study for the proposed site. As the Organizational Development Team works together to determine what proves to be the most economical and viable solution to bridge the gap for our expansion on I-5, we continue to consider all factors such as time-line, constraints, political landscape, cost, and economic feasibility. Additional focus will be to evaluate all potential expansion alternatives. The Tribe is very active in pursuing compact negotiations with the State of California in order to grow and prosper both from gaming and economic development aspects.

Win-River Resort Hospitality In November of 2013, Win-River Casino became Win-River Resort & Casino by opening our 84-room hotel and spa. We have been extremely successful with our hotel, building a brand that puts the gamer first and providing a product that we can be proud of. We have maintained an average occupancy between 80-85%, with 50% of our rooms accommodating active players. Our hotel continues to be a vital part of our increased growth and success over the past five years. One of our major 2019 goals and milestones is our continued investment in new technology and value added software and systems. In 2018 we purchased Atrient and, as of May 2018, we have implemented it as our primary promotional tool with four Promotional Kiosks and one River Club Card Kiosk. In addition, we have purchased the Agilysys Point of Sale system for our Hospitality Departments. With these advancements in technology alone, we have enhanced the guest experience, providing them with more efficient and reliable service. We strive every day to improve the guest experience, putting our relationships ahead of profits.

Technical Services

Win-River’s Technical Service Division is comprised of Facilities Management and Information Technology, both of which are key components in not only setting the stage for our enterprise’s success, but driving it forward. Adopting new technologies and methodologies to reach, incentivize, and impact the customer while ensuring the quality of their gaming experience are key drivers for technical services. The Win-River Resort & Casino Facilities Department maintains and operates all major physical infrastructures necessary to conduct the resorts business, while Information Technology is a key business driver that impacts every aspect of the enterprise.


Win-River Resort & Casino Marketing Marketing Administration, River Club, Creative and Promotions make up the Win-River Resort & Casino Marketing Division. The Win-River Resort & Casino (WRRC) brand is one of our most valuable assets and we realize that our brand is more than just our products and services. The WRRC brand stands for Honesty, Teamwork, Integrity, Trust, and Respect. Our most important goal when engaging with our guests is making sure that they experience our organizational values in every area of the resort and casino. In 2017-2018, the Creative Department serviced Win-River Resort & Casino, RREDCO, Win-River Spa, and various non-profit organizations in many ways. Contributions are the advertisements seen locally and in the out of market areas, on-site displays, and throughout our various media outlets (i.e. TV and radio, billboards, digital signs, print production, social media, and outdoor branding). The increased internal and outdoor digital signs gave us the opportunity to reach our immediate audience in a much more efficient and cost effective way. We continue to increase our engagement through social media, web, paid digital advertising, search engine optimization, and search engine marketing. We have a solid footprint and graphically stronger brand identity in the Redding market than past years and continue to enhance our production and advertising quality to reach existing and new markets. In addition, the Win-River Resort & Casino Promotion’s Team will put a priority on bringing the excitement back to our promotional campaigns. We made every effort to acquire new guests while focusing on the existing demographic to encourage longer play and stays in our hotel. We took the time to ensure that our guests have the “Ultimate Gaming Experience.” We continue to create passion, loyalty, excitement about our shared vision, and continue to develop long-term and trusting relationships with our internal and external guests. We support our community by “keeping it local” and partnering with local businesses on several of our promotional campaigns. These relationships will continue to enhance our synergetic partnerships within our community.

In Loving Memory

Barbara Murphy October 28, 1939 - May 8, 2018 Barbara was the last living Redding Rancheria original distributee of the 17 original distributees. She was Yana, Norelmuk Wintu and Madesi Pit River. She is survived by three children, six grandchildren, and eleven greatgrandchildren. Barbara served as Redding Rancheria’s CEO for 16 years. She served as the Tribal Chairwoman for several years. Her vision for the Tribe’s future has made it very successful. She taught Tribal Members that our Tribe is a sovereign nation. She was instrumental in compacting with the federal government and used the funds to create programs that were beneficial for Tribal Members and the Native community. She was very involved in the Tribe until the very end, and when she was not attending to Rancheria business, you could find her either in the poker room or out of town selling her collection of beautiful Native baskets and jewelry.
