Rebecca Robles and her family have spent many years honoring their ancestors of the Acjachemen Tribe. She follows in the footsteps of Lillian Robles, her late mother, while her children and grandchildren look up to her as a leader heading the fight to legally and spiritually respect their ancestors of the past. 

Her formative years were spent in San Clemente, not far from the original location of the ancient village of the Acjachemen people, of which she is a descendant. Rebecca received a Bachelor's degree in Business Management from Northern Arizona University and became a registered nurse. For ten years, she stayed in Arizona while she worked as a nurse for Indian Health care services at the local reservations.
