The ancestors of the Wilton Rancheria Miwok lived for many years on land bordering the Cosumnes River until 1958. The tribal members are descendants of the Plains and Sierra Miwok who lived and prospered in the Sacramento Valley. In their own language, "mi-wuk" means "people".

The tribe was "re-recognized" as a federal tribe on June 13, 2009, after being terminated in 1958 under the California Rancheria Act, an Indian termination policy.
