Pukúu Cultural Community Services is partnering with the Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians (FTBMI) to build a traditional Tataviam village at Coaynga, the place of the food, in present-day Piru, California.
Village-building is led by FTBMI Elders Council Chairman Alan Salazar and is welcome to the public.
The village, hosted by Rancho Camulos Museum, and sponsored by FivePoint and Santa Clarita Valley Television, includes a kiic (dwelling place), ramada for traditional storytelling, a traditional sweat, and an assortment of native plants! Please note that this is re-occuring, held (tentatively) every other weekend. To stay up to date, please sign up as a volunteer here:
