The Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians is dedicated to preserving and enriching its tribal culture by celebrating its shared traditions that have given their people identity and meaning with a wisdom that still guides their lives.
To honor the memory of those who have struggled on the Tribe’s behalf with dignity, respect, and prosperity, the Tribe continues its commitment to its current and future generations.
As a tribal community, the Tribe breathes life into its ancestral ways through the following:
Tataviam Days – re-establishing our traditional fiesta complete with singing, dancing, games and activities for children and elders. This year we will be honoring graduates and fathers.
Monthly Cultural Workshops – Our Cultural Learning Director will be hosting monthly workshops to share our songs and dances with tribal members.
Language – The Cultural Learning Director is currently working with two CSUN students to create a Coloring Books for our children and a 3rd Grade Workbook for local area youth.
