Thank you to our generous helpers who attend the Tataviam Village building days at Rancho Camulos Museum when they can. We are continuously grateful for the helpful hands that take time out of their busy lives to volunteer with us.


Pukúu Cultural Community Services (pukuu) has partnered with the Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians (FTBMI) to build a traditional Tataviam village at Coaynga, which translates to the “place of the food”, in present-day Piru, California. Materials sponsored by FivePoint & Santa Clarita Valley Television.

The village, hosted by Rancho Camulos Museum, and sponsored by FivePoint and Santa Clarita Valley Television, includes a kiic (dwelling place), ramada for traditional storytelling, a traditional sweat, and an assortment of native plants!
