Too Sacred to Surrender
Presently, the Gabreleno Tongva Band of Mission Indians is attempting to work with the California State University of Long Beach to preserve the sacred site of our prophet, Chichinich, from harmful pollutants from the recent building development of neighboring dormatories.
Currently, the only thing we fully support is the initiative to preserve as much of our sacred burial site as possible.
FIELD TRIP TO THE LA RIVER
Sharing the gifts of Mother Earth with our children.
In conjunction with the Friends of the LA River initiative, tribal chairman Kimberly Morales Johnson and her niece Ellie Recalde guide students through the LA river and the process of making a doll out of Tulle reeds, a much loved toy for the children of the Gabreleno Tongva.
COVID-19 AND OUR INDIGENOUS FAMILY
Native Americans on reservations are stil at risk.
Our Native American brothers and sisters living on reservations are currently at a high risk of catching COVID-19 with incredibly limited access to medical care and even reasonable PPE such as cloth masks.
Please consider donating to Indigenous communities at this time to help us survive.
