Sad News from the Pala Reservation.
Former Pala Band of Luiseno Indians' Chairman King Freeman has passed away.
King Freeman was a leader. He worked to right the injustice of disenrollment at Pala over over 150 members, one he claimed was a personal dispute erupting into collateral damage at the hands of the current chairman of Pala, the porcine Robert Smith. He was the owner of the PALA store for decades.
Our condolences to his family, his tribe and the many people he touched in his long life..... Learn more here from King Freeman's OWN WORDS
