Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians on Facebook: Official Election Results

Along with vice chair Latisha Miller and and member-at-large Natasha Magana, Alejandre and Rico are part of a new slate of leaders who came on board two years ago. Tribal members ousted a prior council whose spending habits were the subject of considerable controversy. The tribe is now suing those former officials in federal court.

The council consists of five positions: chairman, vice chair, treasurer, secretary and member-at-large.
