Personal Biography Statement
My academic history began on this campus at the Community College of Denver in 1992 where I transferred 6 credits from CCD to MSCD and completed a degree in Human Services in 1996. From 1996 to 2002 I completed a joint-Masters Degree with the University of Denver, Graduate School of Social Work, and the Iliff School of Theology (Concentration in Justice and Peace Studies). I was honored to receive a Richard T. Castro Fellowship from the University of Denver. I have co-chaired for two years the Richard T. Castro Visiting Professorship at MSCD http://www.mscd.edu/news/castro/ .
For over 35 years I have been a strong Human Rights advocate and activist. I have passed this tradition of Civil Rights work to my granddaughter Aysia (Flowering Robe) and we will teach my first grandson, Davi Jr, (Peaceful Hawk), and my new granddaughter Rhian(She Who Stands by the Moon) the importance of supporting Human Rights Work. I believe strongly in the preservation of indigenous ceremonies, and culture both for my Mexican and Native lineage. I have two brilliant son's Davi and Jevon that are caring and compassionate. We have a strong family support system. Mitakuye Oyasin (We Are All Related)
