We get to celebrate the 54th annual California Native American Day on 24th September this year! In this time-honored tradition in the California Native American community, the historic and cultural contributions by California Native Americans to the state of California, and to the overall country, are celebrated and honored.
The Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians is one such Californian Native American tribe doing their part and making not only Californians proud, but the nation!
The Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians is a historic tribe of the Northern Los Angeles County of ancestral villages from the San Fernando, Santa Clarita, East Simi Valley, the Antelope Valleys that is dedicated to preserving and enriching their tribal culture. Their origins are in the areas ranging from Simi Valley and Malibu in the west, Cahuenga and Encino in the south, Tujunga in the east, and the present-day Tejon Ranch in the north. To this day, they continue to not only be dedicated to preserving and enriching tribal culture but embracing their community roots to help them thrive.
