Description

During the Tongva: The First Peoples of Los Angeles webinar, students will answer the question “How did the Tongva use their knowledge of the land and the environment to survive?” Students will answer this question by learning about some of the environments that have been, and continue to be, important to the Tongva. Students will also answer this question by looking closely at objects, including natural resources and artifacts, before making hypotheses about which environments the different natural resources belong to.
