Today, staff and students of Riverview Elementary School located in Lakeside, Calif. accepted a $5,000 grant from members of the Barona Tribal Council on behalf of the Barona Band of Mission Indians. As schools across the state wrestle with the reality of budget cuts, the Barona Band of Mission Indians has quietly been helping lessen the blow with its Barona Education Grant Program. Since 2006, Barona has awarded more than $680,000 to over 135 schools statewide.
