Before ethnocentric white folks with Manifest Destiny fever claimed the land for their own, the Acjachemen Nation were Orange County’s native citizens.

Join cultural storyteller, award-winning indigenous educator and Acjachemen descendant Jacque Tahuka Nunez on the first Sunday and/or second Saturday each month for “Journeys to the Past: Celebrating California’s First People.”

This multi-sensory exhibition on what it means to be “keepers of the earth” features song, dance and games.

There’s no better way to learn what being a resident of Orange County is really all about.
