Albert is from the Nisenan, Miwok, Maidu and Madesi band. He was raised on his traditional homelands of Sacramento and has cultivated a deep foundation as a culture bearer. His motivation to continue this work stems from his love of his people and the land. Albert embodies the roles of a father, son, and brother, but his most pivotal role is that of a guide for the younger generation in his community. He is fueled by the resilience of his ancestors and the devotion to the well-being of his people.
For the past 6 years, Mr. Titman has worked closely within NAGPRA. He has represented multiple local tribes in assuring that sacred sites were protected and advocated for old sacred objects and ancestral remains to be given back to its original people. In addition, he has worked with several local tribal nonprofits to assist with tribal youth programs. He has consulted with Native Dads Network, assisting with their statewide wellness work that combats the war on drugs in Native California. This work attributed to the qualitative research being done to identify the negative impacts cannabis has had on tribal lands and communities. Albert has also advised various youth groups including programs for Native Sister Circle and the Sacramento Native American Health Center.
He has dedicated his love for traditional foods into a small business named Indigi-Cuisine, which specializes in ancestral foods. This company allows him to dive deeper into the cultural and medicinal methods his ancestors left.
Albert is currently the Tribal Policy Advocate, where he will continue the partnerships amongst tribal nations and Native organizations to access more funding through all Prop. 64 funding.
