2. Charlie Toledo shares her family history as members of the Towa People in New Mexico. Charlie talks of her grandfather who was separated from his parents as a child and placed with a family as a servant against his will. Her father was deprived of his native language and his native religion was replaced with Roman Catholicism. Charlie recounts how she was then raised in that imposed religion until she rebelled in her teen years during the time of popular resistance to the Vietnam War as she helped young men resist the draft. She would learn from her early political activism to apply her fervor to restoring indigenous people rights in the USA. After her move to Napa County she reorganized the Suscol Intertribal Council in 1992 to make it a safe place to hold native ceremonies and a community center “to bring healing between the existing population and the people who historically inhabited Napa Valley and nearby counties.” In 1995 Charlie attended the UN World Conference on Women which produced the Declaration of Indigenous Women. This led to the 2002 establishment of the Secretarial of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues and to the 2007 UN Dedclaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
