HAKU! (that means "hello")

The Chumash are the indigenous people of nearby coastal California – did you know Malibu’s name is derived from the Chumash word humaliwo (“where the surf sounds loudly”)? Georgiana Sanchez, Deborah Sanchez, and John Moreno are Chumash and have been instrumental in the revival and preservation of the Chumash language. You are invited to hear them share their experiences with this project and their knowledge of Chumash language and culture.
