  1. Is there an event for 2018 scheduled?

  2. Hi, I’m leading a workshop at USC next Friday, 8/31, and I’d like to promote the Life Before Columbus event. Do you know what the date is yet, or is there any promotional material you can send me that I can share? And if you’re not doing the Life Before Columbus event this year, is there anything else that you’d like me to share with the students? (these are students in the theater department at USC). Thanks so much!

    • I’m so sorry for the delay. We’ve been really understaffed and not able to answer all the comments. If you’d like to promote the Springs events (thank you so much) but might I suggest that you try us a little more in advance. Thanks you again for wanting to promote our events!

  3. Are we having the life before columbus with it’s new name that we voted on last year? I am part of a women’s tribal drum crew, the Hummingbird Drum, inspired by Rachelle Figueroa and the Mankiller tribe. WE would be willing to play for the event if it’s on. Respectfully, Lakshmi Lambert 310 7371998

    • I’m so sorry for such a delay. We’re very understaffed and unable to answer comments and questions very quickly. Please call the number on our site to inquire about participating. And thank you for the offer!

  4. Craig Beyeler Call

    Please let me know when the Kuruvungna: Life Before Columbus Day will be this year (2018). I always bring my 4th and 5th grade classes to this very special event.
    Sincerely,
    Craig

    • Thank you for wanting to bring your students. What a joy! I’m very sorry we weren’t able to answer earlier. Our staffing has been quite inadeqaute. In the future, please call 310-806-2418 to make special arrangements for your group. Thanks again!

  5. Will there be a Life Before Columbus Festival this year? I cannot find any info about it. Thank you.

    • We’re sorry you weren’t able to find the info for LBC. In the future please either:
      1. Check our facebook page for current calendar info (that’s best)
      2. Click on Events, then Upcoming Events in the navbar at the top of each page.

  6. Are there no more events in October, today is October 22, 2018?
    My family and friends want to visit the
    Gabrielino Springs soon.
    Can we visit the site any day any time, or only when the Museum is open?
    Gabrielino Springs Museum next opens
    Saturday November 3, 2018 Hours 10 am-3 pm.

  7. Is the Gabrielino Springs open daily?
    Is the Musem inside the Gabrielino Springs?

    • Yes, the museum is on the Springs property. So, it has to be open to get to the museum. I suggest looking at the Tongva Springs facebook page for the most current calendar info. And to find out the hours that the spring is open, it’s best to call the number listed on the site 310-806-2418.
