Tevaaxa’nga (Te-vaah-ha-nga) to Today: Stories of the Tongva People

On View through September, 2019

Tevaaxa’nga (Te-vaah-ha-nga) to Today: Stories of the Tongva People is an exhibit celebrating the history and culture of the Tongva (Gabrielino), who were the first people to live on the land that would ultimately become Rancho Los Cerritos. Today the Tongva play an active role in the Southern California community, with over 2,500 Tongva people living in the region.

The exhibit will be on display in the lower level of the Visitor Center through September, 2019. The exhibit features artifacts, images, and stories from the local Tongva (Gabrielino) community. The physical items are generous loans of personal and family objects. In addition to discussing the native history and culture of this region, the exhibit highlights the experiences of the Tongva who currently live in Long Beach and the surrounding region.
