Tongva History Walk: Remembering our Ancestors

Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation - Los Angeles (TRHT-LA) presents an interpretive Tongva history walk through Downtown Los Angeles.

The walk offers a glimpse into indigenous worldviews and will highlight our current relationships with water and nature, public spaces, oral histories, land and ancestry. Places to be visited include the Yaangna Plaque, Placita Olvera, Union Station and other unacknowledged sites. The goal of the walk is to give voice to suppressed histories and inspire new futures for our city and communities.
