The Chumash are the Native American people who historically inhabited the central and southern coastal regions of California from Morro Bay in the north to Malibu in the south. For thousands of years, the Chumash used a variety of native plants as medicines. These plants still grow in our local mountains and continue to provide a source of healing power.
The West Los Angeles Group of the Sierra Club will be offering a traditional Chumash Healing on Thursday, September 12, 2019 at 7 pm in the Garden Room, Culver City Veterans Memorial Auditorium, 4117 Overland avenue, Culver City, CA
