Speakers will include Mark Macarro, chairman of the Pechunga Band of Luiseno Mission Indians and Mary Ann Martin-Andreas, chairwoman of the Morango Band of Mission Indians.

The forum is free and open to the public. For more information, call Angela Gonzalez, chair of the Department of American Indian Studies at S.F. State, (415) 338-2698 or 338-2701. For additional information, call the S.F. State Public Affairs Office at (415) 338-1665
