The Colfax Indian Big Time (formerly known as Colfax Indian Day). Held its first annual event on August 25, 2018 at the Sierra Vista Community Center in Colfax, CA.
The thought of the event came from a memory Chairman Clyde Prout remembered about his grandmother Lola (Gilbert) Prout. In the article Lola said she wanted to return to Colfax because it was her home and that "we are still here".
In her memory, as well as all the elders and families of the tribe Clyde brought the idea of Colfax Indian Day forward. The thought being to bring education, awareness, and knowledge of the community back to our traditional homelands. The message being "we are still here".
Each year The Tribe focuses on education of historical events and issues that the tribal community has faced, and how we are still here today.
Big Time in the California Native community is about coming together and being a family and sharing food and good energy with one another. We are grateful to our community, supporters, and family.
