Description

The Chumash are one of the native peoples of Southern California, whose traditional lands spread out over some 7,000 square miles. This presentation by an elder discussed Chumash traditions and teaching, as well as the problems that arose from a lack of convivencia between the Chumash and the missions.

Theme of the day:

is this land still made for you and me?

Does “shared life” mean that we just exist side-by-side being affected by others –or even noticing them? What happens when convivencia goes wrong, when U+I = just “me”, and there’s no room for “you” or “them”?
