Her daughter probably says it best when describing her mom, Dore Bietz — “She’s in, all-or-nothing.”
Bietz is a member of the Tuolumne Band of Me-Wuk Indians and is in the top 5% of women National Ski Patrol in the Far West division — she is a National Ski Patrol Representative and works at Kirkwood and Dodge Ridge.
As a Land Consultant for the Tuolumne Band of Me-Wuk Indians, Bietz advocates for the return of tribal lands to original inhabitants. She also works as the Emergency Manager/Planner for the tribe and secured PPE for tribal members early in the pandemic — there have been no cases of COVID-19 on the Tuolumne Rancheria.
