The California Truth and Healing Council was created in 2019, after Governor Gavin Newsom issued Executive Order N-15-19, which formally apologizes for atrocities committed by the State of California against California Native Americans in the early days of statehood, and reaffirms and incorporates by reference the principles of government-to-government consultation., and creates the California Truth and Healing Council. The appointed Council is made up of representatives from California Native American tribes and will bear witness to, record, examine existing documentation of and receive California Native American narratives to clarify the historical relationship between the State and California Native Americans in the spirit of truth and healing.
