I have been asked to ask you all if you might have any information about the Mi Wuk Indian figures that began to appear on community cabins at least 35 years ago if not longer ago. I’m thinking more like 55 years ago. In talking to one of my reporters/informants it might be that Harry Hoefler, developer of Mi Wuk Village, gave a pair to each cabin purchaser in the early days of the development. That information is unverified at this point.
I know that Margie Doe, whom I never met, was somewhat instrumental in their ‘growth’ for “newer” residents but I wasn’t a full-time resident, nor was I very active in the community as a homeowner, in those times. It wasn’t till Russ and I moved in full time in 2003 that we got really involved in Mi Wuk life.
The article will appear in an upcoming edition of the quarterly Smoke Signals put out by the Mi Wuk Area Homeowners Alliance.
Thanks for your help friends, neighbors and community. 🙂
