The presentations are design to be entertaining but more educational we utilize oral tradition, song and dance to share ancient and current geographical knowledge while integrating science and social skills through compelling stories and characters.

Native American educators sharing history, culture and their spiritual ways of life

Our goal is to improve and enrich the California experience by helping others understand the significance of our place of origin, we call " Sy’uktun"  (Located in what is called Santa Barbara today) and connecting those meanings to ones own personal life. By weaving compelling, thematic stories about our Chumash people, land and historical events.  You will learn about the Ancient and contemporary Chumash by our own local Shmuwich Santa Barbara Chumash descendents who still live and practice there cultural traditions.
