In 1979, Margaret Dalton was elected Tribal Chairperson of the Jackson Rancheria Band of Miwuk Indians, a position she held uncontested for 30 years. She had a dream to help the people of her Tribe build a better life. Through determination and hard work the Jackson Rancheria Band of Miwuk Indians achieved self-reliance. But her compassion to help people didn’t stop there. Margaret was an advocate for helping anyone in need. Her immeasurable contributions and tireless devotion to charities and organizations in Amador County inspired the Chamber of Commerce to create the estimable Margaret Dalton Golden Nugget, now known as the Margaret Dalton Golden Acorn. This award honors and recognizes our unsung heroes, like Margaret Dalton, and gives them the thanks they deserve for their generosity.
