Tribal STAR Program Assistant
Auka (“Hello” in Kumeyaay). My Name is Sunni Dominguez I am Kumeyaay/Diegueno from The Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel where I have resided for the past 33 years. I have 15 years of experience working within Tribal communities. My background includes Family Advocacy and Early Childhood Education with the Southern California American Indian Resource Center Even Start Program, work as a Tribal Youth Coordinator for The Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel, and I am an elected Legislator for my Tribe. As a mother of 5, a Foster caregiver, and tribal community member I understand the importance of establishing family unity and connections that last a life time. I am excited to be a part of the Tribal STAR team and look forward to helping make a difference in the lives of Native youth and families.
