Jacque Nunez is a direct descendant of the Juañeno Band of Mission Indians, also known as the Acjachemen Indians. Her great great grandfather was one of the leather jacket soldiers that guarded Father Serra as he traveled from San Diego to San Juan Capistrano. Jacque grew up in the oldest home in California, Los Rios Adobe. Her family has lived in this house built by Feliciano Rios over 200 years ago. Her storytelling venue which is the only Native American venue in any of the 21 missions is unique, engaging and memorable. Jacque received the honor of being selected “Educator of the Year in 2009 for the State of California in Native American Studies. Your students will learn the lifestyle of the builders of the Mission, songs, and stories and will walk away with the knowledge that everyone’s history is important and every culture deserves respect!
