Chumash Welcome Song 1

2h 15min   |   Language   |  Producer  Director 

The Chumash were a sea-faring people. The last few tomols (ocean-going canoes) used by the Chumash were destroyed in a storm 200 years ago. A team of Chumash painstakenly examined Mission records and then built a traditional Chumash tomol (canoe), which was launched in the waters off Santa Barbara November 1997. That is Alan in the front seat.
