Wendy Lucas is a member of the yak titʸu titʸu yak tiłhini (YTT) Northern Chumash Tribe of San Luis Obispo County and Region. She earned a
Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Therapy from Cal State University Long Beach and a Master’s Degree in Public Health from UC Berkeley, and practiced as a physical therapist in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, and here in San Luis Obispo.

She is a wife, mother, and grandmother, so she takes the issues confronting humanity and the environment seriously, especially as they impact our shared legacy. She has worked locally to advocate for the greater recognition of the YTT tribe, wrote the Proclamation for Indigenous Peoples Day adopted unanimously by the City Council of San Luis Obispo in 2017, and was awarded a grant to promote greater awareness of the presence and contributions of the ytt Northern Chumash. Wendy continues to advocate for her tribe in modern-day SLO County to help preserve, protect, and promote the wisdom of its culture.

She also continues her passions as a musician and an artist. When she is not doing t’ai chi, you may find her walking Avila Beach, the village site of her ancestral home, or enjoying family or a good cup of coffee. Family is primary, and she is grateful to her husband for his support in her endeavors to enrich the community.
