Chairman Robert Smith: Our Culture has Survived

FOX 5 Television - San Diego

Each year, I look forward to Native American Heritage Month, because our culture has survived thousands of years through stories, languages and traditions.

For centuries, settlers devastated my people, but our will to live is a testament of our enduring spirit.

As chairman of the Pala Band of Mission Indians, I am dedicated to preserving our place in California’s history.
