After SDSU we all loaded up and headed east to Barona Valley, home of the Barona Band of Mission Indian Reservation. This farm was purchased by Barona years ago after leaving the El Capitan area over the hill. We visited their fine Museum and Cultural Center, led by Director Cheryl Hinton and her staff. After a great lunch of Indian Tacos, Chairman Thorpe Romero visited with us and to welcome the YNS/ITY group and expressed the tribes continued support of the program. Chairman Romero talked about the leadership history, his current role and the future of the tribe. He also learned from the youth and our international exchange student Doris "Waga" Bill explained how her chiefs and council back home (Kuna Yala, Panama) all sit in hammocks during council and make decisions from their swinging hammocks.
