American Indian community educator & historian, she was an advocate for the San Luis Rey Luiseno Band of Indians. A school and a park in Oceanside, CA are named after her. After what she called a jigsaw puzzle of an education at a mission, a Catholic School, a Quaker School and an American Indian school in Riverside, she landed a job at a variety store in Los Angeles. As an older teen, she got a job as a live-in housekeeper. She married John Simon Foussat and worked as a pipefitter during WWII. She and her husband adopted three children, blood relatives. In 1952 the couple moved back to Oceanside. Since her husband's death in 1970, she became active in the community as an advocate for Native American Affairs and as an educator and lecturer. She died at age 97 on November 1, 2005 at her Oceanside, CA home, having acknowledged, "I can't live forever. I had a good time."

Sy Scholfield provides speculative time based on an article in the North County Times (California) of November 1, 2005 by Louise Esola entitled "Oceanside, Luisena Matriarch, 97, Remembered as Advocate." The article said, ""Foussat, whose mother was of the Pala tribe and whose father was of the Pechanga tribe, was born on a cool summer evening in 1908 in a saloon that sat at the foot of the hill crowned by the Mission San Luis Rey. Her mother joined relatives and tribal members for a fiesta and powwow near the river. A saloon on Aug. 25, 1908, the same building is now the popular San Luis Rey Bakery & Restaurant, stationed at the edge of historical Heritage Park, where Foussat celebrated her 90th birthday in 1998."
