The existence of our people on these ancestral lands has been unbroken since long before the first contact between the Tongva and Europeans. Our ancestors were the people who rowed our remarkable Ti'ats (plank canoes) out to meet the explorer Cabrillo in 1542 off what is now San Pedro.  "Tongva" means 'people of the earth'.

Reasons to Love LA

Only in Los Angeles can you laze on the beach at Malibu or ski in the Sierra Mountains on the same day.  Now, I’m a Valley Girl, so I used to ice skate at the mall, you know?  Ah, but I love tequitos down on Olvera Street.  The clack of wood Mah Jong tiles being played upstairs in old Chinatown.  I love the dark smell of the La Brea tar pits.  And you can stand in the middle of Farmers Market on Fairfax and hear 10 different languages spoken all around you.  And most of the time you can tell what they’re saying anyway. 

I live in an area where Arabs and Jews peacefully live next door to each other and Tibetan monks dressed in the colors of the sun wait in line with me at the Post Office.  You can walk down a strip mall and order a Thai iced tea to go with your Greek salad - both made with grandma's secret recipe from back home and there's sacred white sage smudged at Pow Wows.

It is our diversity that makes us strong, creative and alive.  I love this city.  Drop by and we'll share it with you.
