THOUSAND OAKS—Chumash Speaker Series: Eva Pagaling
May 30, 2019 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
THOUSAND OAKS—Eva Pagaling is a member of the Santa Ynez Band of Samala Chumash Indians and traditional Tomol paddler. The Tomol is a wood-plank canoe the Chumash have used for their journeys from the Limuw (Santa Cruz Island) to the mainland and throughout their trade routes. The Chumash peoples gather for an annual journey to Limuw to celebrate the revitalized tradition of Tomol crossings. Eva has been involved with paddling the Tomol since she was a young girl because of her father Reggie Pagaling (Captain and Tomol-builder of Muptami). She will be sharing her experience as a next-generation paddler. Thursday, May 30, 2019, 7 pm Chumash Indian Museum 3290 Lang Ranch Parkway, Thousand Oaks, CA 91362 Free Admission for all 2019 Speaker Series events.
