DID YOU KNOW…

The Tongva are still around today?

By Alexa Johnson


Although the last of Catalina's Tongva left the Island by the 1830s, these Native American people are still a vibrant community in Southern California. Numbering approximately 2,500, the Tongva continue to teach the public about their history and traditions while they seek to protect their homeland and the memories of their ancestors.



A major source for this edition of Island Naturalist is:

Teeter, Wendy G., Desireé Reneé Martinez, and Karimah O. Kennedy Richardson (in press), “Human Occupation and Landscape Alterations on Catalina Island, California,” in Small Islands, Big Implications: California’s Channel Islands and their Archaeological Contributions Edited by Jennifer Perry and Christopher Jazwa. Salt Lake City: University of Utah Press.
