Build a Tataviam Village!

Sign up to volunteer

Pukúu Cultural Community Services is partnering with the Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians to build a traditional Tataviam village at Coaynga, the place of the food, in present-day Piru, California.

The village, hosted by Rancho Camulos Museum, and sponsored by FivePoint and Santa Clarita Valley Television, is planned to incorporate a kiic (dwelling place), ramada for traditional storytelling, a traditional sweat, and an assortment of native plants!

All ages welcome.


    Village building will begin on Sunday, October 22, 2017. However, it will most likely take more than one day to build. Please let us know if you are interested in assisting on other days!

Helpful Information:

  • Volunteers should bring water to stay hydrated
  • Gardening gloves are recommended
  • There will be limited shade. Please wear long pants, sleeves, a hat, and sunblock!
  • Free parking
