Barbara May Cameron was a Native American activist and writer. Cameron was raised on the Standing Rock Reservation. According to her partner, Lynda Boyd, at age 9 she read an article about San Francisco and told her grandmother that one day she would live there "and save the world, too." She did her best to fulfill her promise. She died in San Francisco and was brought to her final rest at Wakpala, on Standing Rock. Linda, her partner of 21 years, and their son Rhys, survives her. Cameron was active in several other groups, including the Alice B. Toklas Democratic Club, the San Francisco Human Rights Commission, the Citizens Committee on Community Development, the Commission on the Status of Women, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the American Indian AIDS Institute.
Together from 1981 to 2002: 21 years.
