Here are a few more images from our Tomol Village Hop 2012 at Avila Beach. It was a Beautiful day. You’ll no doubt recognize someone special in these photos… See you next week for the Tomol Crossing to Limuw 2012?
The Chumash Nation is a maritime culture. We have lived along the California coastline from Ragged Point to Malibu and out to the Channel Islands for over 15,000 years. The Chumash have lived and thrived in these lush lands and coastal ocean environments. Our ocean going vehicle is the “Tomol,” which means “canoe” in Chumash. The Chumash plank canoe is constructed with no nails, rivets, or ribs and it is sown together with a local plant called “Dog Bane.” This twine is made from the hand twisted fiber of the Dog Bane.
