Kalama Continued from page 3 He has taken a team to Oregon Stale Games for five years. He has also put on tournaments for youth and one adult tournament for suicide prevention. He became a mentor for children and feels he has had a big impact on the youth. Mona Baez saw potential in him and asked him to apply as a children's advocate in the court system. He walked children through the court system who were abused sexually, physically and emotionally. It was very painful for him to see these things happening the thc'ehildrcn. He began his training at this point. He then worked as a juvenile probation officer. He had seventy seven clients ages 12 to 18. Most of his clients have made it out of the court system and stayed out. because he feels, he worked with them very intensively and showed that he cared for them. They did what they said they were going to do and if they didn't, they paid the consequences in court, learning that they were responsible for their actions. He became ill and resigned from the probation office in April of 1995. He was hired as the deputy prosecutor but stayed a short time as the Liaison position became available. Kalama is also involved with the Victim Assistance and the Victim Impact Panel as a volunteer. He is on-call 24-hours a day with Victim Assistance. The Victim Impact Panel holds meetings that Kalama attends. He is not afraid to speak his mind or challenge anybody. He says, "I do challenge the people to help break the cycles of abuse, neglect, rejections and abandonment. To break these cycles people need to start by breaking the cycle of alcohol and drug abuse." He was also a Sunday school teacher and involved with the Baptist Church. He went with other church members on a trip to Belize in Central America and enjoyed it very much. He said. "I was even like a magnet to the children in Belize. I enjoyed talking with them and seeing the siclits with the children."
