Mi-Wuk Village is located 14 miles east of Sonora on Highway 108 in Tuolumne County, California. It has a population of about 1,500 people although that number swells considerably in the summer due to the large number of vacation homes in the area. At an elevation of 4,500 feet it can get snow in the winter, but roads are usually clear except immediately after a cold storm.

The monument to Chief William Fuller recognizes his contributions to the community and to the local band of Me-Woks. William's father, Alfred Fuller, arrived in California by overland wagon during the Gold Rush. William's mother Jenita was the only surviving child of a Mi-Wok chief.

William was born in 1873. In 1907 he helped to establish the small reservation known as the Cherokee Indian Rancheria and to organize the local Mi-Wok tribe. He became a prominent voice for Native Americans.

Mi-Wuk Village has all the basic services including a grocery store, restaurants, a gas station, and laundromat.
