We have been contacted with an opportunity for a Tribal Citizen of the Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians to paint a mural in the San Fernando Valley that will depict Tataviam history as the original inhabitants of the San Fernando Valley. The ultimate goal is to get funding for this from a Public Art Initiative, which will include compensation for the artist(s) involved.

If you or if you know anyone who will be interested, please email Timothy Ornelas at

Thank you!
