Abstract Archuleta (b. 1930) recalls his childhood in Colorado on the farm his father managed until the Depression, and then in a barrio in Grand Junction. He describes his mother's work with the sick and the difficulty finding a white doctor who would treat hispanics. He talks about moving to Idaho and compares the discrimination in Pocatello and Grand Junction. Other topics covered include schooling, becoming a teacher, learning white ways, and getting his first teaching job in Salt Lake City. Archuleta also discusses his involvement in civil rights, the Spanish-Speaking Organization for Community Integrity and Opportunity (SOCIO), living among the Mormons, and the Utah Council for Constitutional Freedom and Liberty. In the final interview Archuleta discusses being a member of the Communist Party.
