Imagine what Southern California was like centuries ago, when Native American tribes worked and lived off the land we now call home. During this family event, hear traditional music, see traditional dance as you travel back in time. Guests will enjoy cultural craft demonstrations and educational programs. Families of all ages will be able to participate in arts and crafts as well as other activities inspired by local maritime cultures.

Moompetam 1

“Moompetam (pronounced \’mohm peh tahm\), meaning “People of the Ocean,” is derived from the word for saltwater in the Tongva language. For the local, coastal, and island indigenous people of Southern California, the ocean has always been a sacred entity. The maritime native peoples that inhabited ocean waters for thousands of years, including the Tongva, Chumash, Acjachemen, Costanoan, Luiseno, and Kumeyaay, were taught to deeply respect the ocean. The ocean environment is reflected in all aspects of their cultures.”
