Thanks for writing in. It sounds like you are in a really stressful situation and I’m glad you reached out for help. I’m happy to help in any way I can.
To start off, if you are being harassed by legal officials, it can be helpful to know what rights you have. This webpage has information about how to protect yourself and your rights when interacting with police: https://www.aclunv.org/en/tips-homeless-individuals-interacting-law-enforcement
This last year during protests many people had their phones surveilled by the police. To protect your privacy, it is recommended to use an encrypted messaging app like Signal to protect your SMS text messages, texting groups, and voice and video calls. It is also recommended to set a SIM PIN on your phone to prevent law enforcement from using your SIM card. If you want more information about this, check out these two articles:
Lastly, if you are looking for additional help, you can check to see if you are eligible for the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) Financial Assistance and Social Services. They provide general assistance like cash to meet essential needs of food, clothing, shelter, and utilities. If you’re eligible, they’ll hook you up with a social worker who will help you to develop a plan of getting back on your feet and employed.
They have an office in Sacramento, and this is their contact information:

I would also get in contact with your tribal office to see what advice or assistance they may be able to provide. Just do an internet search for their official website and give them a call.
