“For the first time, Pukúu will be led by not only a California Native woman, but one from the Fernandeño Tataviam Tribe that founded Pukúu,” said Board Chair Samantha Ortega. The Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians (Tribe) established the non-profit as the social services branch of the Tribe for the betterment of their tribal citizens and Native Americans living in their homelands. Today, Pukúu carries on that legacy with programs that continue to uplift and support the community, the community in which Villaseñor was raised. You can learn from Villaseñor directly by watching her talks on the Tribe’s website at www.tataviam-nsn.us/videos.
