Part 2 • Cindi Alvitre, (Tongva Nation), co-founder of the Ti'at Society and the Traditional Council of Pimu, joins us for the second featured segment of today's show as part of our on-going series titled "Indigenous Urban in Los Angeles County" to discuss Indigenous urban peoples in Los Angeles County from a Tongva perspective. Generations of Indigenous peoples now consider Los Angeles County their home, yet what is the understanding of the development of colonial urbanism as it pertains to the First Peoples of the land, the Tongva, and other Indigenous peoples who now consider Los Angeles County "Home"? This is Part 2 of our exclusive interview with Cindi Alvitre. Join us for this insightful series as we transition over the weeks from Indigenous peoples from all over what is now referred to as the Los Angeles County area and Indigenous urbanism.
