My name is Rose Hammock. My father’s people are Pomo and Wailacki from the Round Valley Indian Reservation and Pomo from the Big Valley Rancheria Band of Pomo Indians. My grandfather’s people are also Maidu and grandmother’s people come from a tribe in Northern Oregon – but we have no pictures or records of where they descended from exactly. My mother’s people are Mexican and Nicaraguan. My grandmother’s people come from Mazatlan, Mexico and Managua, Nicaragua. My mother’s birth father, my grandfather’s people come from Acoyapa, Nicaragua and a small area of Managua, Nicaragua.
I recently graduated from the Santa Rosa Junior College with my Associates of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education and my Associates of Arts degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences. I serve many roles within my community, one role being a community representative for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) by providing various presentations and art workshops that help raise awareness of this epidemic going on in our Indigenous communities.
