Nakia Zavalla: Chumash Tribe honors tribes with Culture Days

"About two weeks ago, on Sept. 28, Gov. Jerry Brown declared it to be California Native American Day. The governor noted:

“California today is home to the largest population of Native Americans in the 50 states, including both the rebounding numbers of our native tribes and others drawn to the Golden State by its myriad attractions. The success of tribal businesses and the rise of tribal members in all walks of life today stand as testament to the resilience and enduring spirit of our native peoples.”

That enduring spirit of our native peoples was demonstrated at the 17th annual Chumash Inter-Tribal Pow-Wow held last weekend at the Live Oak Campground. Dancers and drummers representing tribes from across the country attended. I want to thank the thousands of county residents who visited."
