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.

About our Guest:  Charlie Toledo is a descendant of the Towa People, a native to New Mexico. She is the Executive Director of the Suscol Intertribal Council, a community-based organization 501(c)3 incorporated in 1992, located in Napa, California. She has extensive experience as public speaker, presenter and community organizer in regional, statewide, national and international forums. Since 1986 worked in alternative healthcare fields, background in mediation consultation for individuals, families, and organizations. She has been an organic gardener since 1978. She has lifelong commitment to social justice and international work on Human Rights and Environmental social justice issues. Charlie is affiliated with Women’s Intercultural Network, with consultative status to the United Nations.See the numerous affiliations of Charlie Toledo at www.suscolcouncil.org/About.html

 Our Featured Guests

1. Ken Norton recounts the day 49 years ago that he with other San Jose State College students buried a car at the Survival Faire on February 20, 1970, a couple of months before the first Earth Day to protest the environmental destruction caused by fossil fuel based transportation. This was a local SJS effort 2 months before the nationally organized Earth Day to give a sense of the urgency felt by local students themselves.

About our Guest:  Ken Norton is co-producer of Women’s Spaces Show. In 1970 he was an engineering undergraduate student at San Jose State College and was a co-founder of Engineers for Awareness, to bring attention to Engineering students on the issues of war and the environment. He met his mentor Dr. William Hermanns at  the time which would begin a 19 year collaboration on Hermanns’ literary works. He would go on to earn his MS in Materials Science at Stanford Universtiy.  He also produces the Scent of Light radio vignettes broadcast over Radio KOWS in West Sonoma County.

Women in History

Marjorie Stoneman Douglas  (1890 – 1998)

According to a profile of Douglas on the National Park Service website:

Marjorie Stoneman Douglas’ book, The Everglades: River of Grass,, published in 1947 — the year Everglades National Park was established — has become the definitive description of the natural treasure she fought so hard to protect. After several reprints, the revised edition was published in 1987, to draw attention to the continuing threats — unresolved — to “her river.”

In the 1950s, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers rose to the top of her list of enemies. In a major construction program, a complex system of canals, levees, dams, and pump stations was built to provide protection from seasonal flooding to former marsh land—now being used for agriculture and real estate development. Long before scientists became alarmed about the effects on the natural ecosystems of south Florida, Mrs. Douglas was railing at officials for destroying wetlands, eliminating sheetflow of water, and upsetting the natural cycles upon which the entire system depends.

Early on, she recognized that the Everglades was a system which depended not only on the flow of water from Lake Okeechobee into the park, but also upon the Kissimmee River which feeds the lake. To add a voting constituency to her efforts, in 1970 she formed the Friends of the Everglades, and was active as the head of the organization.

In his introduction to her autobiography Voice of the River (1987), John Rothchild describes her appearance in 1973 at a public meeting in Everglades City: “Mrs. Douglas was half the size of her fellow speakers and she wore huge dark glasses, which along with the huge floppy hat made her look like Scarlet O’Hara as played by Igor Stravinsky. When she spoke, everybody stopped slapping [mosquitoes] and more or less came to order. She reminded us all of our responsibility to nature and I don’t remember what else. Her voice had the sobering effect of a one-room schoolmarm’s. The tone itself seemed to tame the rowdiest of the local stone crabbers, plus the developers, and the lawyers on both sides. I wonder if it didn’t also intimidate the mosquitoes. . . . The request for a Corps of Engineers permit was eventually turned down. This was no surprise to those of us who’d heard her speak.”

Tracey explains the process of picking the annual theme and her work with young people who realize the danger to the environment.  Tracey also points to the environmental protection action legacy of Rachel Carsonwho published her book Silent Spring in 1962 and of Marjorie Stoneman Douglas, the savior of the Everglades and the namesake of the Parkland, Florida school where the massacre of 17 students with an assault rifle occurred, as she is an alumna of the school. Tracey is heartened by her Alma Mater’s students rallying the nation to political action on this gun control matter,perhaps inspired by the environmental activism of Marjorie Stoneman Douglas. Students across the globe are rallying for Climate Action.

2018. Most recently she was adjunct faculty at the University of Florida and has held positions from Florida to North Carolina managing and facilitating Environmental Education programs.

Women in History

“In nature, nothing exists alone.”  –  Rachel Carson, 1962

Rachel Louise Carson (May 27, 1907 – April 14, 1964) was an American marine biologist, author, and conservationist whose book Silent Spring and other writings are credited with advancing the global environmental movement. Late in the 1950s, Carson turned her attention to conservation, especially some problems that she believed were caused by synthetic pesticides. The result was the book Silent Spring (1962), which brought environmental concerns to an unprecedented share of the American people.
Although Silent Spring was met with fierce opposition by chemical companies, it spurred a reversal in national pesticide policy, which led to a nationwide ban on DDT and other pesticides. It also inspired a grassroots environmental movement that led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.[3] Carson was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Jimmy Carter.

We began the show with the reading of two Poems:

 Bridges Falling 

                         by Elaine B. Holtz

Bridges falling,
And he is calling for a senseless wall.
Walls to keep people out,
Walls to divide and separate,
Walls that create the other, he’s a bad guy he’s a good guy.
I sigh when I think of it.
So sad.
So senseless.
Such a waste of our taxpayer dollars!
For me it’s so simple:
Justice is a just world for all;
Peace is a peaceful world for all.
The Buddha tells us life is suffering, and we do suffer.
We fall ill.
We lose a loved one.
We fail.
We die.
“Why do we add war to the list?” I cry.

Everybody’s looking for it.
Is it internal trust?
Is it the American dream,whatever that is?
Is it being Beyonce or Bill Gates?
Is it being president of the world?
Is it being able to control the world?
I don’t know anymore.
Children with no place to sleep;
Children running from bombs;
Children crying for food or clean water.

All this going on and all he can do is call for a wall, call for a wall.

I, too, sing America
by Langston Hughes (1902 – 1967)

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

Tomorrow,
I’ll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody’ll dare
Say to me,
“Eat in the kitchen,”
Then.

Besides,
They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed —

I, too, am America.

Two Black Women in American History

Mary Jane Patterson (1840-1894) is considered to be the first African American woman to receive a B.A. degree when she graduated from Oberlin College in 1862.  Read more.

Mary Violet Leontyne Price was born to James and Kate Price on February 10, 1927, in Laurel, Mississippi, and became one of the world’s leading opera sopranos and among the first African Americans to gain prominence in major performance halls in that musical genre. Both of her parents were amateur musicians and instilled in their daughter a love of music from an early age. Read more.

 Our Featured Guest

1. Tina Rogers talks about how she has gained “the big picture” and share that with her young students in her class and audience of all ages in her performances on the history of music intertwined with Black History and the history of humans of all hues.

About our Guest:  Tina Rogers, a native of Sonoma County, has devoted her life in trying to understand this beautiful planet, the humans and the other species that share our world. Her thorough research, education, and communication with other cultures allows her to see what she calls the “big picture.” While attending UC Davis, she turned her passion for the arts, fitness and wellness into a popular example of master teaching not only to children but people of all ages. She is a role model who truly enjoys using arts education and fitness, as tools to “crack-the-code” in child development that lasts a lifetime. I have seen her presentation of Black History through the spoken word and dance and found the experience to be both educational and inspiring. Tina Rogers recently performed at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration in Santa Rosa and is scheduled to perform at the Juneteenth Celebration in Santa Rosa in June.
