Update: Sad to report that ELDER Stella Guzman has moved on, passing away away, Tuesday November 13th, after a LONG life. May she find peace.
Oldest Gabrieleno Tongva turned 100 years old last week. Gabrieleno Tongva elder Stella Guzman celebrated her 100th birthday. Congratulations on a long life.
Mrs. Guzman is grandmother to our cousin Mark Lucero and she survives her first husband, Pechanga Elder and war hero Johnny Miller, who the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians, led by Mark Macarro, completely disrespected by striking him posthumously from the Pechanga Membership Rolls.
It seems the Gabrieleno Tongva have a better way of treating their elders.
