Episode 17 – Jane Mojado discussing WWII

Pala Life: Past and Present
In this episode, I have another conversation with Jane Blackmon and we discuss what the Pala Indian Reservation was like during WWII. This conversation includes the rubber shortage and food rationing. “Aunt Jane’s” upbeat personality just makes for a truly enjoyable conversation. She also speaks about the family that comes to visit on horseback and in wagons even in the forties.
