Tura Satana | Ray Barlow
On Ms. Satana: Satana was born Tura Luna Pascual Yamaguchi in Hokkaidō, Japan. Her father was a Japanese silent movie actor of Filipinodescent, and her mother was a circus performer of American Indian (Cheyenne) and Scots-Irish background. After the end of World War II and a stint in the Manzanarinternment camp in Lone Pine, California, she and her family moved to Chicago.
Walking home from school just before her tenth birthday, she was reportedly gang rapedby five men. According to Satana, her attackers were never prosecuted, and it was rumored that the judge had been paid off.She tells how this prompted her to learn martial arts, such as aikido and karate. Over the next 15 years, she tracked down each rapist and exacted revenge. "I made a vow to myself that I would someday, somehow get even with all of them," she said years later. "They never knew who I was until I told them." Around this time, she formed a gang, "the Angeles", with Italian, Jewish, and Polish girls from her neighborhood. In an interview with Psychotronic Video,[where?] she said, "We had leather motorcycle jackets, jeans and boots...and we kicked butt." 💣
Satana dated Elvis Presley but turned down his marriage proposal, although she did keep the ring.(￦iki)
