|Toni Christie, Ayla & Qotisa|
From GOFUNDME page (h/t Carla Maslin)
The Redding Rancheria Council is SCUM. (no offense to scum) Looks like they are pressing an ICWA suit, when they could simply provide for the children.
Toni Christie is a phenomenal single mother who works hard to provide anything and everything for her two kids, Ayla who is 8 and Qotisa who is 7. Their father is serving a life sentence in prison, so she has been a single mother for a little over 6 years now. The children are part of the Redding Rancheria tribe from their father's side.
Since the kids were little she has done everything to help maintain their culture and heritage. She celebrates special holidays with them, takes them to special functions whenever possible and had tried to keep a relationship between them and their father's family.
Toni has always been a huge advocate for maintaining Ayla and Qotisa's heritage. She attended events and holidays with the Redding Rancheria when she was allowed to.
