Chumash Pow Wow

Over the years, various political and religious groups have tried to remove native american Chumash culture. By forbidding them to speak their language, sending Chumash children to boarding schools and forcing to move away from their traditional native religion, many core beliefs were stripped away. The Santa Ynez Chumash have retained thier culture and now excel.
