Tribal Chairman | Gabrieleno San Gabriel Band of Mission Indians
Chief Red Blood (Anthony Morales) maintains tradition and continuity to his tribe through living on tribal traditional land in the City of San Gabriel. It is noteworthy that Chief Red Blood lives at Northeast corner of land that his Grandfather, David Morales farmed in the late 1890’s through 1900’s Chief Red Blood is comforted by the fact that he continues to live on the land that carries the footprints of his grandfather and ancestor.
Although retired, Chief Red Blood diligently works at his endless role in preserving tribal culture, as well as maintaining tribal identity and unity. As an ongoing effort, Chief Red Blood and tribal dancers have participated in number of cultural events, ceremonies and public affairs since 1995. Keeping an awareness of tribal culture and history is one of Anthony’s top priorities.
