We hosted our Annual Chumash Nation Tomol Village Hop at Chicqawt’ (Morro Bay) and Tsipxatu (Avila Beach) August 18-19 2012 was filled with Sunrise and Launch Ceremonies, Blessings, and Stories.
The tomols paddled the Chumash villages of Chicqawt’ on Saturday and Tsipxatu on Sunday in alliance with the Northern Chumash Tribal Council.
