Gabriella is a 7th Generation descendant of Temecula Chief Pablo Apish. Named after Pablo's wife, Casilda, who was one of the tribal members evicted from the Temecula Indian Village in 1875. Vaunted elder Antonio Ashman has told the story of the eviction.

Congratulations to Jennifer and John for the new child of Pechanga.

Congratulations to John and Jennifer Gomez on the birth of their daughter.

I am sure she already is and will continue to grow into "Nawitmal Yawaywish" (Beautiful Girl) as is befitting her name.

How many of Manuela Miranda's descendents have been born since that awful day when the family was ripped from tribal rolls?

Pablo Apish was a MEXICAN!!!! and the CHURCH give PABLO APISH the title of a leader... not the native people of the area! Pablo Apish (a MEXICAN) grow up in the area and could speak in both spanish (for the church) and in Luiseno to the native people for the church! and as for....

Candaleria... she gave up her indian heritage!!!! she was given an option: to be luiseno and MOVE back in the canyons with the rest of the PECHANGA PEOPLE or move into the city with a plot of land and become a ordinary american citizen! She wanted the later.... she made her choice! JUST ACCEPT IT!

That just goes to show how ignorant our anonymous harraser is.

The descendants of Candalaria Nesecat Flores are STILL MEMBERS OF THE PECHANGA TRIBE!

So you obviously don't know what you are talking about!
