Before shopping malls and highways, there were the Tongva, a tribe of indigenous people who resided in the Southern California area, including Orange County. Here at the ENC, we’ve made it one of our priorities to educate the community about the culture that thrived here long ago. For decades we’ve encouraged the community to experience Tongva history, culture and legends. Now it’s your turn.
Come spend a day in the life of a Tongva tribe member on February 25 with our “The Way Things Were” program. Naturalist Kathy Wiedel will teach families and their children (3rd grade or older) how to make string for weaving and “hunt” with a rabbit stick. Participants can also enjoy a Tongva legend and play along to their traditional music with authentic instruments. All activities have been observed and pre-approved by a Tongva educator.
Admission is $8, $5 for ENC Members. Register at encenter.org
